Pear & Cranberry Cobbler

We may only have a few days left in October, but the bounty of produce continues! This week we celebrate a delicious and nutritious fruit that can be used in both savoury and sweet dishes - the pear.

Grown in Ontario, there are five varieties of pears - Bartlett being a favourite of many!

One medium pear has about 100 calories, is a good source of fiber, and is a source of Vitamin C, potassium, and folacin.

Try this autumn recipe for your next dessert served warm with fresh whipped cream!
