With the business of the summer flowing into the autumn days we have been really reluctant this year to bottle. But with bountiful baskets offering pears I jumped at the opportunity. In general I’m not really a bottled fruit fan, I guess I prefer it fresh and having grown up on bottled fruit maybe I got a little sick of it. Whatever the case I have little motivation to bottle it. With the exception of Pears. I love them! My parents have a beautiful pear tree in their back yard, my father really looks after it and prunes it to ensure a lovely, well kept shape and optimal pear production. So it produces quite a few pears along with being a beautiful tree. So I think that’s where my pear love comes from. Speaking of which I’m going to stop writing this post for a moment and got open a bottle to eat while I write! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Ok, back to or pears, they came individually wrapped in green wax paper (fancy), which made me feel like I was opening presents! I love the red color of these pears, screams fall don’t you think? I felt bad removing the skin but scarifies must be made. So we pealed and cored and filled and sealed and it was done. Now we have a nice little stash of pears to enjoy for the rest of the year, if we can ration them that long.
