Im-peared

I had the brilliant idea of buying a case of pears (a HUGE case!) from the food co-op last week003end, planning to can them all sometime this week.  We waited all week and couldn't wait any longer so today was it.  We spent the entire evening peeling, coring, treating, cooking, ladling, and finally processing.  I am so beat!!  We ended up getting 11 quarts in a light syrup and another 7 pints in a syrup spiked with almond liquer.  These had better be the best damned pears I've ever had in my life LOL

We still have about 30 more pears to go, and even though I have tons of stuff to do in order to take off for Denver this weekend, I'm going to cram in a batch of pear jam tomorrow.  

Want to know more about the food co-op?  It is through Bountiful Baskets.  We've done it twice so far and have not been disappointed.  It is a great value, you get tons of produce for only $15!!  $10 more if you want all organic.

Have a great weekend!
