PORK INDUSTRY By ANDREA GAINER WVU Extension Agent, Home Bartleit-pears from the Pacific Coast often are referred to as the "summer" pears. Regardless of the name you choose, Bartlett or summer, add them to your sum- mer and fall meal plans. Fresh Bartletts are delicious -- simply eaten fresh out-of- hand. They are also ideal for cooking and baking and can be incorporated into a variety of tempting entrees, salads, fruit platters, main dish accompani- ments, or desserts. Enjoy them as a refreshing snack, paired with wedges of your favorite cheese. Or, bake them with honey and spices to serve as an accompaniment for barbequed chicken, beef patties, or pork chops. Sound tasty?. Don't wait to add Bartletts to your meal plans. Their season extends from late August and runs through the last of November. When you choose Bartlett pears you'll be adding more than good taste to your meals. In addition to their delicious flavor, fresh Bartlett pears offer nutritional value to the diet. Bartletts contain a certain amount of nutrients, such as iron. phosphorous, vitamin C, the B vitamins. And they are quite high in potassium. In addi- tion, pears are low in sodium, making them an excellent choice for those on salt-restricted diets. One medium pear contains about 100 calories. Think you might not recognize a Bartlett?
