Harvesting Pears

Not the prettiest of pears but Chemical Free


The pear trees produced a bumper crop this year! With the garden being a bust, I am thrilled that the fruit trees produced so well.

I am not sure how many bushels we will end up with but I do know that the next week or so, I will be busy putting up pears. Canned Pear Halves,  Pear Sauce with the smaller fruit, a few jars of  Pear Butter  to replace what we used through the year.

I would like to try dehydrating, and freezing some as well.

I have been scouting the Internet looking for some new pear recipes, since pears will be taking up a big part of the pantry this year.

Do you have a favorite pear recipe?  Feel free to share a link!

  1. Your pears look as good as ours ever do. Our favorite way to eat them other than out of hand is in fried pear pies. I just pare and cut them like you would apples and add sugar & cinnamon to taste. Mmmm.

  3. Your pears look beautiful! I just love pear butter, also. Especially when I make it in the crockpot! We are planning to plant a pear tree this winter. It will be one of those 3-in-1 types with Bartlett, deAnjou and another. My son has one of those trees and it is just great because he gets three harvests! Your cat is beautiful - wish I still had mine. :(

    1. We have four trees producing right now, and this year they were all full.

      Sorry your trees didn't produce, we have had those years as well! :(
