    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.

    4 cups of peeled and coarsely chopped pears
    3 cups flour (save 1 Tablespoon)
    1 1/2 teaspoon soda
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
    1 cup pecans & 1 cup of raisins Dredged in 1 Tablespoon flour

    Bake in well greased and floured bundt pan 325 degrees for 1 1/2 hours with pan of water below the bundt pan.

    Frost with cream cheese frosting or same on as German Chocolate Cake.

    Our pear tree died many years ago & had to cut it down. :-( I remember canning them though. Made pear everything:) . Even made a pear upside-down cake (same as pineapple, just used pears.

    I made this Glazed Pears & Apples recipe last fall and it was delicious. You could also make it with all pears or all apples. It was wonderful! It's great on top of pancakes.

    If you like smoothies pears are delicious with apples and bananas in a smoothie.

    Taken one sweet ripe pear for each person. Peel leaving the stem on the top (You will need it for moving pears to desert plates.)
    Using a paring blade or corer, remove the seeds and center
    from each pear.
    Cut your favorite soft candy bar into pieces that will fill up the cavity in the pear. and press them into the empty space. chill - but these need to be eaten pretty much immediately.
    Place one on a plate and drizzle with caramel sauce!

    pears are also a great FILLER...as in they have no real taste of their own when added with strawberries, peaches, etc, so they are a great filler in jams/preserves.

    my boys also love then MINTED...yummmmyyy...I love them with cinnamon & cloves...with an almost sugar free syrup!
