Showing and Telling # 1

Over the past many months I have been first introduced and then intrigued by blogs. In fact I have a few that I frequent EVERY DAY!

One of my favourites is 'There is No Place Like Home'. (Check out her blog with the link below) Kelli amazes me from week to week with her crafts, wisdom AND recipes.

Every Friday she has a Show and Tell and invites everyone to participate. It is a grand way to visit other blogs with kindred spirits.

As my second posting ... EVER ... I am Showing and Telling you about some Pear Honey that I made. (Thanks Kelli for the recipe!) It's amazing.

Yesterday my 'Hubby' and my 21 year old son, 'The Genius', informed me that they would come home from work much later than usual. I had planned using up left overs for dinner, so I had a bit of spare time before they arrived.

I said to myself, "Self? Why not try that Pear Honey recipe?" I already had purchased a small sack of pears and so all I needed was a few other ingredients.

~ * ~ Pear Honey ~ * ~
Yields six pint jars

8 cups (about 3 pounds) peeled, cored, and chopped pears
One 20-ounce can pineapple with syrup (crushed is best, but you can use chunks, tidbits etc)
10 cups sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice

Mix all ingredients in a large saucepan.
Cook until pears are tender and mixture thickens, approximately 30 minutes ... strirring often.
Transfer to a blender and puree. Transfer back to saucepan and bring to a boil for about 5 minutes. (I own a Bamix hand blender and so simply pureed while simmering.)
Pour into sterilized jars and seal with snap tops and rings while still hot.
Carefully place jars on towel-lined counter. Do not tip when transporting. Allow to cool at least 8 hours. They will snap as they cool and seal.


I topped with circles made from some quilt fabric that I had, cuddled the jars with a pretty grape vine, added an extra pear and Voila! French for "Wow, I can't believe I did that!"

Please try the recipe yourself. You and your lucky family with thank me :o)
