Thread: Pear jelly

    Default Pear jelly

    We put up eight pints of pear jelly today, made in the manner I
    described yesterday. This batch, due to the type of pear we used has a
    rich red color. Very nice looking and probably will be good to eat.

    Probably Sunday we will start peeling,coring, and slicing pears for pear
    slices in very light syrup. I think that will be our final product of
    this batch of pears.

    Our day started with a thunderstorm moving in before daylight and
    lasting until mid-morning. I believe we are caught up on the amount of
    rain we are supposed to get. The okra is about eight feet tall now and
    the pepper plants are approaching four feet tall. Luckily it's about
    8,000 feet straight down to rocks or we would be swimming.

    I'm envious of all those pears, George. I'm waiting for the Ontario pears
    to come in so I can make another delicious batch of marmalade or 2. Maybe
    I'll try some jelly too.

    The problem is, we've had so much damn rain (more than twice the usual for
    this time of year) this summer that every thing tastes waterlogged. The
    strawberries were tasteless - as if they had been injected with water, and
    they barely lasted a day without spoiling. My flower gardens are lush but
    wont bloom. I have patio tomatoes that can't ripen. I'd say the only thing
    that is really successful is the mosquito population! I bought corn on the
    cob today - it's tiny, maybe 8 to 10 inches a cob. Dunno what it tastes
    like yet...........

    Our rainfall averages from 35 to 100 inches per year, any fruit or plant
    that can't swim doesn't make it. I seem to remember that in 1991 we had
    right at 100 inches. We spent from July through November of that year in
    Yemen so missed a good part of the rain.
