Pears and Cherries

   On the Sunday between teacher-inservice and school starting, I made 3 loaves of bread and cooked and canned some pears. I was lucky to have a friend share some pears from her tree. All this cooking/baking made my  kitchen REALLY hot. I can't use a regular canning pot on my glass topped stove. I have a large pot and a strainer type insert to keep the jars off the bottom. It is not large enough for quart jars though. I am planning to get a propane burner and start using it on my patio for the water bath part of canning!
YES, that was 3 weeks ago, but I wanted to share my dresser first!
Y'all come back,


  1. WOW! quite the busy lady. All looks and sounds yummy ! Have a wonderful Sunday !

  2. Those pears are so pretty! I did my first canning project this summer, too - with bread and butter pickles. I really enjoyed it and may try to do something with apples since it's now apple picking time!

  3. Very pretty color. I need to can a few pears before they are all gone.


Howdy, Thanks for dropping in. I love to hear from you!
