In past times virtually every house in Renon had its own pear tree. The ripe fruit was eaten and also preserved through drying. It was placed in the open attic and left to dry in the air. The dried pears were called “Kloatze”. The origin of this term is lost in the mist of the time, but the technology is still used today. In recent years “Rittner Kloatze®” has been produced again on Renon and has been used in the production of tasty dishes and of exquisite products such as the Rittner Kloatze cheese.
