Pacific Northwest Canned Pear Service (PNCPS) announced its winners for their CAN-DO Challenge. This challenge invited K-12 operators to share creative or just a simple way to include U.S. grown canned Bartlett pears on their menus. "The winners showcased the flavor and texture of canned pears in both savory and sweet recipes while tapping into hand-held, pick-up and delivery trends, and incorporating popular flavor profiles." said Susan Renke, Promotion Director for PNCPS.
The 1st place winner was Teresa McAdams from Westran Middle School in Clinton Hill, MO. She made a Pear Beef Banh Mi Wrap and took away $1,500 from the challenge. Here's a link to the recipe page!
