The old pear tree may be gargled and weathered from many years on the hill but it is still flowering for all of us to enjoy. The bees are buzzing, the birds are sitting in it singing and when the fruit appears, the raccoons will be throwing pears on the ground for the deer.( I have seen this event by 3 raccoon with 2 doe under the tree munching away.) Looks like we are gonna have a mighty fine crop of pears. Do you liked baked pears? I like them cooked, canned and raw. Just any way I can eat them give my taste buds a true sense of Heaven. My mother use to peel , core and grate the pears for her preserves. You talk about GOOD with a home made biscuits and real butter topped with her preserves. Ah, that was some fine eating. The Kitty Justice is do you eat foods that bring back childhood memories?
