Waited a few days too long on the pears…

Summer will be done before I know it. My field of high waving flowers has faded…

…and I thought I was being relatively attentive about the pear tree. Unfortunately…


…turns out I wasn’t being attentive enough.

So when all was said and done, Tobie and I took a side trip on the way to afternoon chicken chores…

…to visit the goat people with almost half the tree’s load.


No point in letting them go completely to waste. The goats enjoyed them as much as the bugs seemed to. Probably also enjoyed the bugs. And I made a deal for some dusty mason jars. And tomorrow if all goes well…


We’re going to try our hand at pear butter.

    That’s a fun story! Can’t wait to hear how your pear butter project goes.

    Pear butter. Now that is a new one.

    If you are making it in a pot on the stove (not in the oven or a slow cooker etc) don’t get distracted while making your pear butter. It will burn easily. Stir, stir, stir.

    Actually, Paul, it’s a very old one. There are a bazillion YouTube recipes available. I’m trying to figure out what I want to do with mine, also. I’m leaning towards pear cobbler, and freezing the filling in batch sizes appropriate to a pan full.

    Should have let those pears ferment a while before giving them to the goats!!!

To the stake with the heretic!
