I followed fairly closely to the recipe, substituting only cooked pears for fresh (I had a lot and tend to be a bit of a fresh fruit hoarder...LOVE the stuff). As far as technique, b/c I had already cooked them, I didn't get the Victrolia Food Mill out of Grandma's garage, but instead used my Bosch blender.
This recipe chain makes me laugh a little because Knit and Nosh also references the recipe she found and changed to her liking. I haven't yet tried it in my oatmeal, but it is excellent as apple dip, as well as ELEVATING A PB&J TO NEARLY GOURMET!
Thank YOU, GOD, for pears, and sugarcane, spices, and lemon trees. You make all things beautifully. Our creations come only from your MASTER DESIGNED building blocks. For YOU alone are worthy of all praise.
Limited Edition as usual - I think I have 8 extra jars. They come with ribbon bedecked and sporting lovely labels for instant gifting =) Contact me on my Aria Gardens facebook page to order a jar (or 2 or 3)
Hmmm, I only have 1 jar of Apple Butter in my pantry....maybe that will be next? But, there is also a "Pink Pear Extraordinaire" recipe tugging at my apron strings.....AND THE POMEGRANATE TREE IS RIPENING!
Well, you know I always have a "thought" Question....Which one WILL I make next?
