2 Bumps

I have 50 lbs of Asian Pears

Any ideas?

We canned 12 lbs of quartered pears last night.

The baby has been eating pears with every meal. Yum

What would you do with 50 lbs of Asian Pears?

  • You don't have to go anon for that. If we can't figure enough things out to feed our family they will go to the food bank.

  • I like pears, but they spoil fast, you could make some pear tarts, I would maybe take some to the neighbors, a good way to meet people, you could also give some to the UPS man, LOL!

  • These are Asian Pears- they are a cross between an Apple and a Pear. They last a heck of a lot longer than the average pear, and it was the FedEx guy, LOL.

  • Poach with brandy and serve on ice cream
    Pear, bacon, onion chutney and serve on chicken or pork. Or nix the onion and serve on pancakes/waffles/french toast
    Cube and grill
    Chunks of pear, crumbled bacon, and walnuts with brie cheese (like a baked brie)

  • A few pies? I would probably donate some. I'm curious, how did you get 50 pounds of pears?

  • Oh, well then I would be making some jelly! I love apple jelly, I assume you could make it with that? So sorry I didn't keep track of your delivery men, LOL!
