We had the opportunity to score some free pears and apples last week. Wahoo!

The pears ripen OFF the tree, but the apples were ready to go when we brought them home. I had one 5-gallon bucket of apples and I made 3 jars of apple juice, 1 jar of canned apples, and 4 jars of applesauce.

The pears are still ripening, but I anticipate making pear jelly, spiced pears, some pear juice, and some canned pears. I’ll be sure to take pictures, since I apparently didn’t take any of the apples!!
