That’s the number of pears I harvested off the pear tree on Sunday. There are about three pears I could not reach at the very top. I also have about 10 pears already sitting around the kitchen. All together, I probably have about 13 pounds of pears.
I shared in the Pears, Pears, Pears, Pearfection post how pears need to be chilled for ripening. So into the fridge these pears go for about 5 days.
After they ripen, I’ll be making a batch of pear jam. The recipe and instructions I will be using are located on the Pick Your Own website. That leaves me with about 6 more pounds of pears.
There is also this Paula Deen Pear Honey recipe that looks delicious.
What ideas do you have for pears?
