COOKBOOK: taste.com.au Bake cookbook
Here in Australia we are coming into our Winter months and there is nothing better than a good home baked muffin with a hot cuppa. An easy, super delicious muffin recipe! Nashi pears are delicious. Nashi is the name of pear in Japanese. This pear has a round look to it and can be confused with a slightly off coloured apple.
One pear has only 215 kilojoules and provides four grams of fibre. Nashi pears also contain more than a dozen vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, potassium and manganese, as well as vitamin K and copper, which are both important for bone and blood health. This pear can also be eaten raw. Enjoy
