This is my nephew P who is trying so hard to show me he'll be "two fingers" next month.
Boo calls it "juice" in the hopes that I'll let him put it in a cup and drink it. Fat chance, Boo.
So 54 pounds a pears later, and new blisters from peeling and coring, we ended up with 28 quarts of spiced pears. 14 quarts per family.
This stuff is divine on cottage cheese! Or on pancakes or waffles. Or the lazy mama-got-up-late-this-moring way in a bowl with a spoon. We pop open a quart jar of fruit for breakfast about once or twice a week the whole school year. No artificial colors, or preservatives. Just fruit and sugar and water. Oh ya, and a little nutmeg this time too. At less than $1 a jar, it is SO worth it.
And that makes it so worth while!
