Pear Time (BBB)

Oct
26


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 then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
