I was standing in the front yard with bare feet, a towel on my head and wearing my pajamas in the middle of the afternoon because I just got out of the shower after finishing a very dirty job. I was talking to my parents when my wonderful friend showed up and brought me almost forty pounds of no spray, non-gmo pears from his parent’s property in the Okanagan. I thanked him and he gave me a hug and drove off. I love how my friends know me so well! (Heck they don’t even question why I am frumping out in the front yard!)
I am so grateful for this free bounty! I thought about pear butter and chutneys, fruit leathers or salsas but I decided to dehydrate them. I have been spending the evening looking up recipes to dehydrate pears properly, while eating a baked pear with butter, cinnamon, goat cheese and black pepper. This is a divine invitation for cooler Autumnal evenings. I left the oven door open to put a little warmth into the house. I am so blessed to have received this gift of perfect pears! Thank you! Tomorrow I am going to be a happy and busy girl.
