Pear Heaven

It's that time of year!  Pear Season!  Neither my pear tree, nor my dad's, produced much this year, BUT my dad's neighbors', The Moore's, tree produced hundreds and hundreds. They were kind enough to let me have a lot of them.  

A few years ago I made pear pies and froze them.  We then had pear pie at every holiday and occasion that came up.  When they were gone I was so sad…so sad.  So when the opportunity to restock the freezer arose, I jumped at it!

I also tried my hand at making pear jam and pear preserves.  YUM!  I'll have the recipes for all coming up soon.  


  1. I've missed your posts! (I used to blog @ The Siren's Tale). Hope all is well!

  2. Somehow when thinking about future gardens, I've never really considered a fruit tree. Not sure what we could grow in Ontario, but apples certainly! :)

    1. :) I'm hoping my little apple tree does well. They don't grow too well down there. There are soooo many things to make and do with apples!
