Yesterday, we decided that it was time to pick and shake the rest of the pears off of our tree. It is amazing how quickly pear season comes and goes. I actually think that waiting for the pears to be ready to pick was the hardest part and seemed to take a long time!
Now, we have over 100 pears that I need to do something with! So, last night, I was looking at recipes online - pear crisp, pear syrup, pear smoothies, and other delicious sounding recipes. I think that the hardest part of making these recipes is peeling, coring, and chopping the pears. However, the result is well worth it!
So, I am trying to enjoy every last bit of each pear that we have, because after they are gone, I will not eat another pear until next pear season - I am spoiled by my pear tree, and the ones in the supermarket cannot compare!
So, the next thing that we have been thinking about is planting a peach tree...because I LOVE peaches too!
