Show 147, November 21, 2015: Robert Schueller, Melissa’s Produce

Robert Schueller of Melissa's World Variety Produce in the AM830 KLAA StudioThe very best and freshest of Fall produce is now available at your favorite food store. We’re going to take a deeper look at seasonal items including Korean Pears, Christmas Crunch Grapes and Cinnamon Persimmons with our esteemed resident produce expert, Robert Schueller of Melissa’s World Variety Produce in-studio.

New for the season are Melissa’s Roasted Dutch Potatoes and Roasted Brussels Sprouts. Simple re-heat and they are ready to go. Talk about convenience…

Melissa’s Korean Pears, for instance, are crunchy, juicy and sweet. Extreme care is taken while growing these pears; the outcome is a clean, blemish-free fruit. Unlike Western pears, Korean Pears are round and large in size. The skin of the pear has a light, brownish-yellow tint while the inner flesh is white. This variety is cultivated to have an extremely thin skin, which is sweet not bitter.

Melissa’s Korean Pears have a variety of uses in cooking, sliced, diced or shredded over salads, baked, or stuffed for desserts.

Robert will return on Saturday morning, December 26th with a continuation of his report.
