At Ken’s Market Queen Anne, our goal is to bring you the best tasting Bartlett Pears from local Washington growers who harvest at just the right time, allowing the fruit to hang on the tree until they are ripe, full of flavor and ready for our loyal customers to eat. Bartlett Pears are the only pear that change color from green when they are tart and crunchy, and ripen to a golden yellow that softens to a juicy, sweet and aromatic fruit. Pears ripen from the inside out, so try carefully squeezing the neck of a pear to test for softness. That is how you know a pear is at its peak and ready to eat. Not only are pears delicious, but they are also great from a nutritional standpoint as an excellent source of fiber and vitamin C.
Traditionally, Bartletts are known as a canning pear, but they are so much more. Try eating right out of your hand like an apple for a healthy snack, fresh sliced into a salad or present pear slices on a platter with cheeses and nuts. Bartletts are great for baking into a tart, and quick breads. For a warm way to start the day, try them in the morning poached or baked in a ramekin. For baked pears, set in a ramekin whole, and core removed. Add 3 tablespoons brown sugar into the cavity, dot with 1/2 tablespoon butter, chopped nuts, and sprinkle with ready-made pumpkin spice (available in our spice section) or sprinkle with your favorite spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger or any combination of those. Then bake in the oven at 350 for 30 to 40 minutes. Top with whipped cream and serve with toast to dip into the juices that surround the pear. This is a great way to start any day, but especially on these cold autumn mornings!
Where does this fabulous fruit come from? Well let us tell you a little story. Oh, and it is true!
In 17th Century England, a schoolmaster named John Stairs sold some pear cuttings to a grower named Williams, who immodestly named the resultant variety of pear after himself. The Williams Pear became a staple variety throughout the country.
At the end of the 18th century, the pear tree was brought to the New World. Enoch Bartlett, a merchant and farmer from Dorchester, Massachusetts, acquired the farm where the pear trees were planted. Mr. Bartlett named this pear after himself (he didn’t know the pear already had a name), and from then on, throughout the United States and Canada, the Williams Pear became known as the Bartlett Pear. Many years later, in 1828 when a new batch of pear trees arrived from England, it was realized the Bartlett Pear was the same as the Williams Pear, but by this time the name had stuck!

Timeless Tradition -
THE HOLIDAY RIB ROAST
This December, set the mood for a night to remember, and let the evening sparkle with engaging conversation and good food. Make sure your meal is inviting and will be savored slowly at the table in the warm company of family and friends.
Ken's Market Queen Anne carries Painted Hills Natural USDA Choice Beef from Oregon, which is high end beef. Painted Hills defines natural to mean much more than the basic USDA requirement. For Painted Hills, the word natural defines the way that they raise and care for their livestock. It means each animal was raised on 100% vegetarian feed and was never given antibiotics or growth hormones. Visit the Painted Hills website for more information.
We offer 2 different versions, plain or seasoned with fresh herbs, fresh garlic and kosher salt. We take the roast off the bone, trim it and tie it back on to the bone. We do all of our meat butchering here on-site. We won't cut until it's ordered. Call (206) 282-1100 to place your order for your perfectly aged roast that is custom-cut so it is just the right size for your festive holiday dinner.
The superstar fruit of the Fall season has to be the Honeycrisp Apple, which we are fortunate to have grown locally in Washington. And boy have we got them! These warm-hued yellow, red and green apples are as crisp and colorful as the season's changing leaves. With a flavor that is the perfect balance of sweet and tart, Honeycrisps pair perfectly with a variety of Autumn cravings from caramel or candied apples to apple pie and tarts. Try them as baked apples for breakfast. Pureé them and make a homemade gourmet apple sauce. Add them to buckwheat pancakes, to fruit salads like the Waldorf or as a great garnish in green salads. They are delicious roasted with a simmering pork roast. For a healthy after-school treat, try slicing and baking them for crisp apple chips.
The celebrated combination of caramel and apples signifies the glorious onset of Autumn. Stave off the first chill of the season with a warm mug of caramel apple cider, topped with whipped cream and a cinnamon stick. For an adult version, spike this hot apple cider with 2 oz of Tuaca, an Italian liqueur (do not stir). Top with fresh whipped cream, sprinkle with pumpkin pie spice or ground cinnamon, garnish with a cinnamon stick. Smells and tastes remarkably like a hot apple pie!
