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.
