Pear Time (BBB)


Pear butter is one of my favorite recipes, and this recipe comes with one of my favorite “canning with Georgia at the old farmhouse” stories. (Find it here.) There’s still time to get pears–I saw some hanging on a tree on a back road just the other day! But you better hurry!

You can get the printable for the pear butter recipe here. Anybody need a BBB to go with it?

    My son eats pears so fast around here, I don’t know if there would be enough left to make butter with. πŸ˜† Maybe if I hid some. Also, BBB please. Somehow I misplaced mine last canning season and had to hunt down recipes, so winning a BBB would be great!

    Your recipe for pear butter calls for 6-7 pounds of pears…is that before or after you core and peel the fruit?
