Pear Facts

Canned Pears
  • Canned foods often provide needed nutrients at a lower cost than fresh, frozen and dried forms, particularly when price, waste and time to prepare are considered.
  • Canned pears are a convenient and easy way to add fruit to your diet.
  • All forms - canned, fresh, frozen, dried and 100% juice - of fruits and vegetables provide needed nutrients that make up a healthy diet.
  • From a nutrition and sensory standpoint, recipes prepared with canned ingredients and those prepared using cooked fresh and/or frozen ingredients rate comparably.

 

Quick Tips for Using Canned Pears:

  • When a recipe calls for a poached pear, simply use a can of pear halves.
  • Freeze one can of slide pears in juice until solid and then blend with 1.5 cups of sugar-free lemonade and 6-ounces of low-fat or nonfat yogurt for a refreshing drink.
  • Puree canned pears to add to soups as a thickener or even to smoothies and salad dressings.
  • Roast canned pears with rosemary pecans and olive oil, then combine with cranberry sauce for a quick and easy Thanksgiving relish.
