The Golden Russet Bosc pears are available from Frog Hollow during the fall months.
The Golden Russet Bosc pear is true to its name with a yellowish-white flesh and a uniformly russet brown skin. It has the classic Bosc pear shape with a long elegant neck. The Golden Russet Bosc pear may be eaten while it is crisp and firm or ripe and softened.
Pears offer a good source of vitamin C, folate and dietary fiber. One medium-sized pear has less than 100 calories. Most of the vitamin C content is in the skin of the fruit, so pears should be eaten unpeeled. Providing some potassium and iron, pears contain pectin, a soluble fiber that helps control cholesterol levels.
Having a sturdy dense flesh, this pear is ideal for cooking, especially poaching, sautéing or baking. The Golden Russet Bosc pairs perfectly with cheese, enjoy on a cheese plate or try a baked or slow roasted pear stuffed with gorgonzola. Thinly sliced and baked into a tart with crystallized ginger and rosemary makes for a simple yet flavorful dessert. To store, keep at room temperature until ripe and then refrigerate.
