Pears
« on: October 22, 2014, 09:31:35 AM »
My Mom planted a Pear tree in ~1937. 
 

 
It has gotten rugged looking and has survived much, but it does still produce a few pears each year.

I picked about 5 gallons this past Saturday and Pat made some Pear Preserves.
 

 
The first batch cooking.
 

 
I need a hot buttered biscuit.   food6

I have been eating a lot of pears this summer, Karen doesn't care for them. They also make a very nice brandy ;)

Those Pear Preserves look great and now you can enjoy the flavor year round. I love pears when they are in season around me. The Seckel Pears are my favorite.

Magicman. My mom made some pearbutter years ago. Like applebutter but with pears and it had just a few pineapple chunks in it. Some of the best eating on a hot bisquit. Yum.
Give me a new saw chain and I can find you a rock in a heartbeat.

I don't know exactly what kind it is ,either bosc or bartlett you used to find in fence rows and pasture fields .Hard as a rock until about late September or the first frost .

Turns yellow with a mottled skin .High sugar content doesn't keep long maybe 6-8 weeks in the "fresh" state .One of the most tastey pears I ever ate in the fresh ripe state . Which is only way I care for pears ,canned don't like .

Around here, those would be Kieffers;  very gritty and grainy and better for preserves than eating fresh.  Kept 5 trees when we pushed up the orchard.  Just finished peeling 2 x 5 gallon buckets of 'em;  probably slice 'em tomorrow night and make preserves Saturday.
Here's to us and those like us; DanG few of us left!

We plan to go to the Cabin tomorrow & Saturday and will try to pick some more.  That old tree is really only a snag, but it keeps on trying.  I wish that I had paid more attention when Mom told me what variety it was.  (Actually, Mom and Dad both told me lots of stuff and I was not paying enough attention.)   :-\

It is a regular stop for the deer each evening.

Backstrap would probably fit on the plate with the biscuit and preserves. Just a thought.

Backstrap - that's what I was thinking!  Some of the tastiest venison I ever had, the deer had access to apple trees. As they say (morphed) "they don't fall far from the tree" ;D fudd-smiley

My pears are doing OK this year, two biggest have a couple bushel full on them and the small one had a few.   They are Bartlet my two biggest trees, (Pear SHOULD) have a different species of pears to cross pollinate for best fruiting.   My smaller trees (planted 5+ years apart) are of two different varieties one Bostic & forget the other one.    BOTH of the two smaller trees are ones that are supposed to cross with the Bartlet's the best.

I would love to have time to can some myself but been simply eating one on way by that is on ground & ripping up this time of year... 8) 8)
I'm looking for help all the shrinks have given up on me :o
