Check out that pear tree! It is actually in our neighbor’s yard, but a quarter of the tree hangs over our driveway, so we get loads of pears just waiting for us to pick up! Dehydrating the pears have been wonderful, but if anybody has any other suggestions for pears that are lightly smashed on one side (from falling on the driveway) and slightly tough skinned, please let me know. I’d love to make more, it is always fun to share the abundance!
