Just so you won't think I was joshing you about canning apples and pears. Here is a picture of the results of much hard work by Madam and myself. Apple butter, apple sauce, sliced apples, apple chutney, pear halves and pear preserves all ready to enjoy over the winter. Yes, it was a little work and I did have to buy jars and lids but the jars will be reused over and over. The reward will be when you can open a jar of your own stuff knowing exactly what went into it even to the point of picking the fruit. Did I mention that the fruit was free for the picking?
