Pears


Aren't they pretty?
Now, what should I do with them?
Anybody have a favorite recipe using pears?
I have a few days...they aren't ripe yet.
Or maybe we should gobble them up just as
 they are and let the juice run down our chins. ha.

    1. I love pears, too! I haven't baked with them in a long time. I have a yummy pear cake recipe but I haven't made it in years and years! I think it only uses 1 c pear puree, though. I would have to make too many cakes! hahaha.

  4. I vote for gobbling them up and letting the juice dribble down our chins. :)
    Pears are downright golden, aren't they?

    1. Hey! I think you've flipped. (Your blog that is...)

      Delete
    2. That would certainly be the easiest and healthiest way to eat them, wouldn't it?
      And the boys like them that way, too.

      Yes, I've flipped! I'm still not used to it! lol....

  5. Us quirky people don't like pears. They're to gritty. I don't like seedy/gritty fruits. But I like the way they smell. Of course hubby loves them but not cooked. They are pretty, though.
    Don't know if you read my reply so wanted to thank you for the look-up date to CLF. :)
    I have no idea where I wrote it down. It's not on my calendar and I can't remember what magazine I saw it in.

    1. I'd love to have one....but would probably pick a cherry tree first! :) Then peach, then pear. ha.

  10. I was thinking this week of making pear jam, but I have never had it, sounds sort of bland, I say let the juice run!

    ReplyDelete

    1. It's not bland at all....I've had it...it's really good, especially with a little cinnamon in it!

    2. Betsy here the cherries ate all the birds last year LOL

  11. We have a few pear trees on our farm. It is our least liked fruit and the one that bears the most. Naturally!

    1. I guess you could always take them to a farmer's market!

  12. How about pear butter? Like apple butter, but with pears.

    1. I bet that would be wonderful! Great idea! One warm biscuits? Oh my!

    2. I think that's my favorite suggestion, Kathy. It would make pretty little gifts, too! And it would use a lot of pears, which would be good! :)

    3. Let us know what you decide to do.

  14. I love pears. Some of these recipes look amazing... pear chutney, pear and banana loaf, vanilla pear granita - oh my! http://tipnut.com/make-fresh-pears/

    1. I looked, too....several nice ones that I hadn't thought of. I saw that pear banana loaf! The granita is intriguing!

  15. When hubby and I met one of the first things we had in common was pears - neither of us like them! Works well for us, but it means that I have no peary advice for you. I expect that they would make a good crumble though!

    1. haha...oh, that's funny! It's amazing to me how many people don't like pears! The Mister likes them only if they are under ripe and still crunchy, which I think is awful. lol.... Crumble is always good...and so easy...I will certainly have to make one of those!

  16. That photo makes me want to dig out my watercolors, Betsy. So beautiful. I really love the run-down-my-chin kind of pear enjoyment! LOL! blessings ~ tanna

    1. a fellow light-loving girl! That's the first thing I noticed about the pears was the light hitting them from the back door. So soft and pretty...I had to grab my camera! :) I have a feeling most of the pears will be eaten just like they are....which is fine with me!

  17. Hi Betsy,

    Sorry, I too do not have any pear recipes for you but I did go look on Pinterest for you and it looked like it would be a good idea to can the pears, pickle the pears, and even make pear butter. I have made a pear and berry cobbler, and also a peach and pear one too. I just followed a peach cobbler recipe and added the other fruit. Mostly we just eat them and let the juice drip down our chins. I do think that canning them is a good idea so you can have them during the winter months.

    God bless.

    1. I did look on Pinterest.....several beautiful ones I'd like to try. Apple pear pie caught my eye. :) Pickled pears looked interesting, too...with cinnamon sticks in the canning jars...they sure were pretty!

  18. I made some pear sauce last night. You make it just like apple sauce, but don't need to add much if any sugar. Tends to have a slightly different texture than apple sauce, but my children like it.

  19. You've got a lot of good suggestions from your blog readers, and I am wondering what recipe you will go with to make a yummy pear treat. Whatever you choose, I'm sure it will be delish. You're pretty wonderful in the kitchen...I can tell that from the tasty looking food pictures you post. Have fun with those pears!
