The Pear Bureau Northwest is leveraging social media for a new promotion aimed at pairing pears with summer fruit.

The Milwaukie, Ore.-based organization is sharing recipes and asking consumers for their most creative grillables for a chance to win prizes.

“With Anjou pears still in season and available during the summer months, we’re using our social media and e-newsletters to show consumers how pears can be incorporated into summertime festivities and everyday meals,” said Cristie Mather, director of communications. “During this time of year, we promote recipes that pair pears with other produce that is popular during the summer months, like avocados, corn and berries. It’s also a great time of year to promote how pears can be juiced, muddled or pureed to serve in cool pear cocktails.”

Consumers can visit to get recipes and send their best grilling recipes to to win a Sur La Table Kebab Rack. Entries must be received by July 30.
