But I wanted to share some great recipes that I have found work out well!
First, for my Pear Sauce (Aka Apple Sauce – except with pears) I used THIS recipe for apple sauce and used my pears.
Today I took some pear sauce out of the fridge and used it to make Carrot Cake Jam and Spiced Caramel Pear Jam – both were amazing after they set. For both of these, I used Pear Sauce instead of peeling, chopping and whatever else to the pears if called for. I simply measured the pear sauce to what the recipe called for for the pears. This made jam making much faster and easier, having the pear sauce ready to go.
Now I am cooking my last batch of pear sauce right now and plan to can 3-4 quart size jars of simple pear sauce to eat like apple sauce. One batch though I am adding in some brown sugar and some spices and I plan to can this in pint jars and use for dessert sauce – maybe on some pumpkin bread, or ice cream, or whatever else sounds good.
I have been trying to eat plain yogurt in the morning for breakfast and so I could easily mix in my sweet sauce and have a yummy breakfast treat!
So while I was busy with my pears, Katie was playing in a Braum’s bag – she was having lots of fun, then she caught me watching
And was not too happy to be interrupted!!
Okay, I am done with pears for at least today. It was lots of work, but at least it was productive!
