    Oh my goodness, the d'anjou pear tree is producing. Not as heavy as in the past, but plenty for 2 people.
    I am canning this weekend. Plain pears in syrup, and a few brandied.
    Pear Crisp, pear cake and baked pears.
    I have spiced pear butter on the shelves.
    Taking a bushel to family out of state Sunday.
    Anyone have a suggestion for other pear recipies?

    I like pears used like apples in a fresh pie or cobbler. These can be made ahead of time and frozen....baked when you want it. Pear honey is wonderful:)

    Have you tried dehydrating or drying pears?

    We've got pears too! The asian pears filled a whole garbage bag full and the other pear tree (not sure of the name) we picked a couple last night but I thought it was sour, so not sure if it was ripe yet.
