buerre bosc pears
Medium sized grown in Bilpin. The majority of orchards in this area were destroyed in the bushfires but here we have one saved from the clutches of Mother Nature.
A new grower for The Locals Market.
The flesh of this pear is dense, crisp, rich and creamy. It is less juicy and firmer than other pears, so it will hold together well when cooked.
When fully ripe the pear has a sweet buttery taste.
After being cooked the beurre bosc will keep its shape and remain quite firm, though somewhat softer than the uncooked pear. This is why it is used in many desserts, especially poached pears, and also used when baking cakes. It is also a good pear to use for crumble.
