Yesterday, our neighbors gave us the rest of the pears hanging on their tree! Their son shook the tree and made nearly all of them fall to the ground. They are HUGE, crisp, sweet and delicious! I have no idea what variety of pears these are. Do any of you Gentle Readers have any idea? We will can most of them, in water, this time, as I don't use very much sugar anymore. If you want to know my method, please check out THIS post. I did use sugar that time and they were really wonderful. I feel so blessed!
At the same time, I am grateful for these:
Our local grocery store sold bananas this week for 38 cents a pound. At least here, that is a very good price so we bought a lot of them! Some will be sliced and dehydrated and the rest, when they are quite ripe, I will peel and put into freezer bags and freeze them for smoothies.
