First Sunday in April

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?

Had a pear tree in our yard as a kid but they never were very good to eat. Love the blossoms.

Beautiful blossoms. Our Pear tree is almost ready to pop. I like pears too. The cherry trees will follow the pear in blooming----I am ready. We are making a Cherry Pie today from last years cherries. Yummy good. We froze the pie cherries and besides eating the sweet cherries we made some excellent syrup and used it all up on pancakes and then ice cream. MB

The tree we had in my youth the pears were not good raw but cooked and preserves well that was all together different. Peace

Sounds like Spring has hit your area too. Is it not wonderful? From our cherries, I make cherry preserves, cobbler and tarts. Never made syrup. Peace
