The plums are all gone and now we're on to apples and pears. A good deal of apple pie has been made and consumed, so now with the pears ripened unexpectedly quickly (they have to be picked unripe, but they went ripe awfully fast after that), we are digging through the pear recipes. Or, rather, my mother is. I am ostensibly packing and returning library books.

They are beautiful! I have a great pear tart recipe if you would like it! I involves almond. I usually make it for our christmas dinner. You could also can some. Apparently they do very well. I would not know as I have never canned, or jammed, or jellied!

Funny your word verification has "fog" in it. How appropriate for the bay area!

Canned pears are delicious. My grandmother used to can them for us, jars and jars of pears, and I'd take them to school in the fall to eat on weekend mornings. I'd trade empty jars for more pears each Christmas.

My mother is making some of the pears into sauce.

The tart recipe sounds wonderful! I could get it either off a comment here or if you want to put it on your own blog, I'll find it. Thanks!

I invented a pear soup recipe some years back but have to find where I put the recipe, which I know I emailed to friends using a previous email program...

I vote for pear butter. Delicious on toast on winter mornings.
