A Lesson from Pear Country

I was going through some pictures from this fall and came across this progression. I promise I haven’t doctored the photos in any way.

Below, we see a grower from Oregon’s Hillcrest Orchards illustrating what kind of pears don’t get picked. I asked him how deep certain bruises went and he showed me on one particular pear.

Out comes the paring knife…

Carve away some more (action shot)…

And, voila!

The pics provide some that appearances can be deceiving. A little, or in this case, a lot of bruising, doesn’t mean you have to toss the entire piece of produce.
