Pear flour autumnOur editorial team always tries to provide detailed and accurate information, but it is possible that events undergo changes that we are unable to update in real time. Exact details on dates, times and programmes can be obtained directly from the organiser.
In the past, as sugar was still unaffordable for a simple farmer’s family, they used to dry mature pears in Verdings in Eisacktal. In winter, they let them freeze, in order to subsequently grind them into sweet flour. The pear flour was now ready for use as an alternative for sugar.
Pear Flour Feast in Verdings and Pardell
Today, the locals are proud of this tradition and let it revive, for instance, with a homonymous circular route and a very interesting event called “Birmehlherbst” (pear flour autumn). Inns and restaurants in Verdings and Pardell will serve various specialities made from pear flour from 18th to 24th September.
The highlight of the event is the festival on 24th September, when a historical and culinary theme day takes place along the pear flour path. The Pear Flour Feast is organized by local companies and associations and promises enjoyment, fine entertainment and fascinating knowledge about the rural customs. Of course, the hosts and associations also offer many typical regional specialities.
