I always love it when fruit still has a leaf attached.
They usually get a photo shoot! ha.
The pears I was given were getting ripe quickly, so
I spent some time putting some in the freezer.
The easiest way to peel a pear is with a potato peeler.
Then slice in half and remove the core with a melon baller.
Then take out the center string with a paring knife.
Lay them in a bowl of water with some lemon juice added.
Then you can put them in freezer bags!
I put three bags in the freezer for this winter. Yum.
See all that juice on my hand? They were THE juiciest pears!
Then I made a crisp to take to the auction today.
Yum. It's good for breakfast or dessert!
The baking with cinnamon, apples or pears is done!
The men gave me a mum as part of my birthday gifts last
Saturday! Love the color, and what a great coincidence
that it was on my fall list!
After I enjoy this for the season, it's going in the ground.
I want to enjoy it next year, too!
