Hogan’s Vintage Perry
Perry pears were scarce last year, so we were lucky to get a bit of Hogan’s award-winning Vintage Perry.
Allen Hogan – and whoever he can coax into helping him – must hand pick most of the perry pears from local orchards, otherwise he has trouble finding enough. Perry pears are delicate, and must be handled carefully, and most people just aren’t up for the hard work anymore. Allen is. Luckily,the pears hardly need to be washed since they’re picked up by hand. Unlike apples, pears don’t float, so this makes things a little easier. Just a little.
