Pears, Pears and More Pears
The photo shows 7 of the 42 pints of diced pears that I started canning Friday and finished on Sunday. I was also able to make 2 pear crisps and put enough diced pears in freezer for a batch of jam.
Today I will be dehydrating the 30 pounds of apples that we picked at a friend's home over the weekend. I still want to buy some more apples to can........the ones from our friends don't can in slices very good. They make better applesauce and apple butter.....maybe I'll make a batch of apple butter. My maternal grandmother made the best apple butter, pear butter and pear preserves.
Seems like I keep finding more canning to do to keep me busy everyday. I want to can some veggie soup and carrots too!!!!
