Pears are a soft sweet fruit from flowering trees, with a distinct shape, and mild honey floral flavor. When dried that pear fruit flavor is concentrated and enhanced, making dried pears a healthy way to snack and appease a sweet tooth. Because the nutrition of fresh fruits is maintained in dried fruits, they are a healthy, quick, and convenient way to meet daily recommendations of fruit servings.
Dried pears have a crisp exterior and chewy center, a satisfying combination of textures. They work well in baking, and can enhance scones, breads, muffins, and cookies. They also do well as a breakfast fruit snack. Dried pears can be softened in warm oatmeal, or enjoyed paired with gourmet cheeses. For holiday meals, dried pears can be added to breading and stuffings and cooked with game birds like turkey, duck, and pheasant.
There are many varieties of pears, some originating from Europe and others from Asia. Asian pear varieties are typically slightly smaller and sweeter than European varieties.
Dried pears should be stored in a cool dry place in an airtight container. For an even longer shelf life they can be stored in the refrigerator.
