There are 5 pears left to eat "au naturel". I gave one of Ken's co-workers a dozen to eat. I processed---
- 20 pints pear butter
- 18 pints canned pears
- 10 pints spiced Christmas pears
- 22 pints/jelly jars pear/pineapple/orange/cranberry ginger jam
I'm sure I will give a lot of it away at Christmas time. The jam is especially good, and I look forward to making some homemade bread to eat it on. And sorry you purists, I do like to apple or pear butter with my grits!
My pans are almost all washed, the electric roaster is soaking. I think a long soak in the tub for me is due!
