Asian pears have russeted brown/copper skin and are sweet, crunchy to the bite and amazingly juicy. Unlike other pears, they do not soften when ripe but retain their crispness. Eat fresh as a snack, or slice on a salad (the flesh does not brown when cut!) We’ve had several customers mention that they pair well with blue cheese and crackers!
A long cream-colored root with a pungent flavor. Stirred into a paste with vinegar, finely grated horseradish is an incomparable finish for roast beef and cocktail sauce.
To prepare: Peel and dice horseradish root and place in a food processor. Process until finely chopped, add salt, then pour in vinegar until the mixture is of a spreadable consistency. Will keep for several months in the fridge.
