Pear - Black Worcester (cooking)

Bangors Organic
£3.50 1 kg Pear - Black Worcester (cooking)

Black Worcester is probably the oldest English pear still in use. It can be traced back to the early 16th century, and is probably much older than that.

Black Worcester pre-dates the trend towards the Continental sweet buttery-fleshed pears that became popular in Victorian England. This is not a pear you eat fresh, but rather one for the kitchen. Slow cooking transforms the fruits, and this is the definitive choice for traditional English stewed pears.

Looks so good Gill! They are always great, but a particularly good combination of veg for us this week! Just made a veggie lasagne with the squash, leeks and mushroom. Yum! X

We are loving our first Ooooby box, my kids asked if they could visit [the growers] to thank them for the amazing apples! Too cute. Totally pleased with the quality, quantity and ease. It was like opening a treasure box.
