This morning we went to a neighbor's house to pick from her pear tree (after she had gotten all she wanted). There were soo many! The branches were almost bent double.
We met another area homeschool family and had the boys get on the ladders - though there were still tons of pears too high to reach!
We laid them all out on newspaper on our big table tonight. We'll wrap some individually in newspaper and store in the cellar to keep fresh, then I'm not sure what with the others. I've heard rumors of preserved pear halves, pear honey, pear mincemeat......hmmm. It all sounds good to me!
Does anyone have any favorite pear recipes to share?
