I did something really stupid. I bought a bushel of pears. I somehow thought that my family would pick them up and eat them like they did the peaches...yeah. Not a chance. Saturday I did make a very yummy pear/apple crisp, but it only used 4. So, yesterday I decided that they had reached their peak sweetness (yes, over-ripe) and I canned 7 quarts, and made pear butter.
And that is all I did. Oh, well, the 9 loads of laundry too... but really. It took all day to peel those pears. Anyone have some suggestions for the bowl full in my fridge??
