    Love your quote ! A country girl I am too !

    You can make pear sauce -- just like applesauce
    Pear butter
    Pear Pie -- I use my apple pie recipe

    Canned pears

    Pear cookies - well not really its a think pie. Roll out pie crust and line a small 11 x 7 pan with the crust and make pie filling(like apple pie) and make another crust for the top and bake. My kids loved this for a snack. Easier than pie to have on the go.

    ** Fresh pears chopped or sliced and added to salad greens!

    ** Pears cooked up as you would for canning along with lemon slices, then eat hot or chilled. Chilled is nice and refreshing with the lemon.

    Here is a recipe I am always asked to make:

    Pear Bread

    3 eggs
    1 1/2 cups sugar
    3/4 cups canola oil
    1 t. vanilla

    Combine the above in a mixing bowl; mix well.

    3 cups flour
    2 t. baking powder
    2 t. cinnamon
    1 t. baking soda
    1 t. salt

    Combine the above in a separate bowl. Stir into the egg mixture just until moistened.

    4 cups finely chopped peeled ripe pears (about 4 medium)
    1 t. lemon juice
    1 cup chopped walnuts

    Toss pears with lemon juice. Stir pears and walnuts into batter.
    350 55-60 minutes 2 greased loaf pans.

    I use them just like apples. People have been raving over my "apple" butter for years not knowing they were eating pear butter. Pear crisp is a family favorite made from my canned pears. It's easy and delicious for a winter treat. Pear sauce is just as good as applesauce. Use your imagination and enjoy.
