|i think it is a kieffer pear tree, thats what my research has said|
Well, it is no secret that I love to garden and cook and find it absolutely amazing to take raw goodness of the earth and see what I can do with it. Last fall I made crock pot applesauce, which is delicious and super easy. And these pears are a lot like apples, they aren't really to eat because they are hard and best used for cooking. So, I replaced the apples in the applesauce with pears and made pearsauce.
12 - 15 pears cored and cubed
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
cinnamon or apple pie spice to your tasting
place and stir in crockpot on high for 4 hours
use can mash to the consistent you like
(you can use the same recipe for apples)
(makes house smell scrumptious)
I, then, decided it that I liked it so much and there was plenty of pears on the tree that we should be able to enjoy it all year! So I canned 12 half pints. It was my first time canning by myself (my husband did help a little).
It is sooo good on ice cream with caramel!
My kids helped me pick the pears and they did enjoy throwing them just like my brother and I.
