Pears from the backyard

I finally got to use my Apple Longaberger basket for something it was sorta made for!

Collected pears last night…at least the ones on the lower branches. I need another ladder for the top ones.

Now I have to figure out what exactly I will make with them, here are a few ideas:

Spiced Pear Jam
Pear Butter
Pear Preserves
Autumn Cranberry Pear Jam
Ginger Pear Marmalade

I’m pretty sure I have enough to make two batches…I’m leaning towards the Spiced Pear Jam and the Autumn Cranberry Pear Jam.

    The basket is beautiful. Mine is full of beautiful books about apples. It makes a pretty display. We lost our crop of pears from the effects of Irene. Save a few pears and make a tart. The flavor will be incredible.
