With or Without Partridges, Pears Are Good

By Tom Herrin

The thought of some things always bug people.  Why was a partridge hanging out in a pear tree in the first place, and what was the purpose of such a gift?  Some questions may be best left unanswered.  The pear tree, however, brings to mind a healthy fruit that can have a positive impact on health.  It is often one of the less expensive fruits as well.  Most remember eating them when they were young.  Pears were always included in fruit cocktail.  Their juice was available as a thick nectar.  As a healthy food, pears are as good as any.

They May Make Healing Faster

Since pears have a decent amount of Vitamin C, they are a natural for helping to fight certain illnesses.  With their levels of ascorbic acid, wounds appear to heal faster.  It can also be attributed to improving the repair of blood vessels.  This may not be said about all foods, but a pear is one that stands out in the category.  

They May Reduce Inflammation

Pears have antioxidants and flavonoids.  These play a big role in helping to minimize or reduce inflammation.  This is a critical element in assuring the best of health.  Many who suffer from excess inflammation can have some serious problems with it.  It often results in limited mobility for some.  It can become a tremendous challenge for those who must deal with it, while others take for granted their own ability to deal with it effectively.

They Have a Good Flavor

Most of us had pears as babies, if nothing else.  They are a common fruit that we give our children early on.  This is likely because pears are high in water content and high in fiber.  They are good for digestion.  I remember eating them as a child often.  I either ate them straight out of the can or with a little cottage cheese on top.  I have also enjoyed having them raw.  A good pear is sweet and soft.  You won't have to struggle with biting into them.  As for cooked pears, they are pretty good in a cobbler.  My wife makes it on occasion.  If you like a cobbler that is not terribly sweet or has a strong flavor, pears may be for you.  They have a more subtle taste.  Try adding them to your menu.  They are simple and healthy -- and delicious.
