Pear Preserves 2011
blackberry preserves and pear preserves, because I can create concoctions with layers and layers of flavor. I used a combination of Taylor Gold, organic Bartlett, and local pears.
While we were at Central Market my husband noticed the $22 worth of pears, $8 in vanilla beans, $14 in local raw honey I needed to make preserves. (Plus I had canning jars and sugar at home.) He pointed out that we're spending $50 to make Pear preserves, and then he walked over to the jelly aisle and showed me a $5 jar of pear preserves. He asked if I wanted to buy a jar instead? When I turned down his offer (pointing out that I don't add any preservatives or pectin to my preserves) he said that he's going to plant me a pear tree so we can at least get free pears.
