More windfall!  We picked pears in the in-law's yard last weekend.  I used my big canvas whole foods bag, and it ended up being about a bushel I expect.  I laid them out on a towel lined sheet pan in two layers to ripen a bit during the week and processed them today.



As usual, vanilla pear butter: http://sarahbyrdd.livejournal.com/87754.html
7 lbs of chopped pears made 12 4-oz jars and 5 8-oz jars.


And pears in tea syrup: http://www.snowflakekitchen.com/2011/11/reflections-take-two-pears-in-tea-syrup/
I made 5 quarts of these and still have 2 dozen pears to eat out of hand.



I feel like I'm making out like a bandit, that was probably $40 worth of fruit that I didn't have to buy.
