Couple bushels of imperfect pears
My pear tree left me about 10 bushels pears, and I threw the worst of the buggy ones in the garden. I have at least a couple bushels in the house, FINALLY ripe enough to do something with--canning. So far, I did a test run of a dozen pears the other night and I only had to throw out 1/2 or 1/3 of a pear if it was bad in an area, the rest was getting sweet and wonderful.
I'm thinking pears chopped and in a light syrup for one.
Maybe pear butter, maybe pear sauce. I'd like to try something exotic too, by that I mean something with some spices or herbs in it, maybe with other fruits. I've got the week-end. Anyone have an idea I can draw from, I'd really appreciate it, thank you in advance, ~Blissful
