Many Apples, Many Pears
Our friend Carmen called last night to tell us her apples and pears were ready. This morning we picked three bushels of apples and two of pears. Marathon apple butter, applesauce and pear canning session is in the works. First get a batch of apple butter going in the crock pot since it takes 24 hours plus and then we can do some applesauce and pears. Going to pickle some of the smaller pears this year from Madam's recipe for Texas Pickled Pears and I am going to try and make old fashioned pear honey if I can find a recipe. I think my grandmother's went with her to the grave.
