Last night I sorted through the pears and pulled out the ones that had to be used or had rotted. I decided to weigh the pears this year so I can have a better idea of how many we get. Last night - 17 lbs. So many had bad spots that I didn't get enough to can. I decided to make pear bread. My friend made it 1-2 years ago and really liked it. I found a recipe and adapted it to what I had on hand.
I substituted mashed pears for most of the oil, because I had a lot of pears and very little oil. I used part white/part wheat flour, almond extract, and shorted the spices (sadly). I normally have a very heavy hand with spices but I was almost out. Nathan and Sarah said it's tasty but next time should definitely be spicier. It looks pretty though! I froze 4 loaves.
I'm now out of:
And almost out of:
That's a tragedy in this house. Nathan even offered to donate some of his fun money to the grocery budget so I could restock, since most of his snacks depend on me baking yummy things.
