    Pear Butter

    This stuff has always hit my particular "spot"... In the morning, on toast; as Okie would say, "Yum-O!"

    Make Pear brandy


    Pear Brandy

    Ingredients:
    1 firm, ripe pear
    3 cups (750 ml.) brandy

    Directions:
    Rinse pear, dry and place in a wide-mouthed decorative glass jar (at
    least 1 quart). Pour brandy over pear (pear must be covered). Seal
    airtight. (If seal is rubber or synthetic rubber, cover glass top
    with plastic wrap to protect seal from alcohol, which can soften
    it.) Store at least one week or up to one year at room temperature.

    Makes 3 cups

    we usually slice them up and soak them in red wine,
    let them soak for a day, serve chilled.


    but the brandy sounds really good also.
