For centuries, sweet flour made from pears used to replace sugar, which was very expensive. Let yourself be taken on a pear flour culinary trip!
For centuries, sweet flour made from pears (‘Birmehl’) replaced sugar, which was usually too expensive for the poor rural population, but it’s hard to find it today. The production of this flour is very laborious and time-consuming, but the use of pear flour makes dishes unique. In former times, the small village of Verdings above Klausen was also known as ‘Birmehldorf’ (Pear Flour Village). For some years now, this old rural custom has been revived, and for the fun of it, and to keep the tradition going, restaurants and associations have invited visitors to a culinary circuit between Verdings and Pardell along the specially established Pear Flour Path. You can taste pear flour gnocchi, pear flour ‘Schlutzer,’ pear flour bread, pear flour doughnuts, pear flour pizza and pear flour tiramisù. The main focus of everything is on the old peasant customs.
