Pears, Forelle

Pears, Forelle
(Pears, Forelle) Some of the literature we have seen about Forelle Pears (pronounced for-EL, however in German it is pronounced for-el-e) says that they are one of the smallest varieties of pears, a little larger than Seckel pears, but the ones that we bought seem to be larger. Their symmetrical body, often bell-shaped, begins with a small round base that tapers evenly to a short neck. Their stem is usually long, straight, and narrow. A unique characteristic are the red lenticles, or freckles, that set this variety apart. Their flesh is moist, crisp, and delicious. They become available from September through January. They were developed in Saxony Germany in the 1600's, where they were named Forelle, because they looked like the coloring on a rainbow trout. German immigrants brought them to the United States in the 1800's, where they where they began to be grown commercially in Washington and Oregon.

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
