Demonstrate what you “CAN DO” with U.S. Grown canned pears in annual CAN DO Challenge

By Pacific Northwest Canned Pear Service

U.S. grown canned pears are the world’s most flavorful and flexible fruit. (At least we think they are!) And it’s high time we peeled back the curtain and showed off all that they can do. That’s where you come in! All you have to do is share a photo and description of the most creative ways you serve canned pears.

1st place, $1,500
2nd place, $1,000
3rd place, $500

Contest open to non-commercial chefs, directors, managers, and RDs from K-12, colleges and universities, business and industry, healthcare and military members. Everyone who enters will also score a $10 Starbucks gift card just for entering. Select entries will be featured on eatcannedpears.com.

Judging includes plate appeal and unexpected pairings. We all know U.S. grown canned pears are dang tasty right out of the can, but what creative ways do you serve them? Show us how you feature canned pears on your menu. Also, adding juicy canned pears to a recipe can be an unexpected surprise. Show us your personal spin. Smoothies, desserts, entrees—it’s all fair game.

Contest deadline is April 30, 2021 and the winners will be announced May 21, 2021.
