Pears and More Pears,mean More Cobblers :o)


We were so delighted with the taste of the Pear Cobbler that lasted only for two days, (we limited our intake :o)...the decision was unanimous that we must have enough to last us for the Winter....(That's the best excuse ever) and another was to "Strike while the Iron was Hot" .I'm on a roll here!:o) To shorten this long story, This is the new batch of Pears , that are now 14 quarts in the freezer as pretty a batch as you ever did see...I was too busy to stop and take photo's of each four batches I did...How I did it....I had a big bowl with a cup of vinegar..I would peel the pear...put in the bowl....then I would slice them , letting the slice fall into the same bowl with the vinegar , keeps them from turning brown....and when the bowl was full enough, I would take the pears out and rinse them, they would be a natural white pear color after the rinse ...bag them ...and stick them into the freezer, All Done, and what a good farmers wife am I :o)

You'll be glad you went to all that trouble this winter, Ginny. I bet that cobbler is the best ever. :D

Nice to know that pears can be frozen like that...thank you. Next year I won't have to work so hard doing all the canning!

Sherri, I'm glad to have given some good advice...I also freeze tomatoes,peppers,cabbage,okra,green beans just naming a few things most people don't realize can be frozen..Cabbage is no longer cheap like it used to be...I froze it because it was handy to have instead of running into town to shop....I may start doing it again when it's plentiful.....Ginny
