The 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.
