The recipe is very basic, from colonial times, George Washington used to make apple and pear jack. Grow some fruit, harvest, juice or press fruit, add some sugar, ( to boost alcohol), add fermaid, add some champagne yeast and let it ride!! Freeze outdoors, remove ice, repeat. @heatherdirtyhands @anges @crabby58 @columbiariver what doesn't freeze, is delicious alcohol pear/ apple jack!
I've come to the conclusion that my pears are asian pears, roundish, crispy and brown rough skin. Best for cooking. Unfortunately they have been hit with a nasty rust and I'm going to have to have them taken out. They are nice older trees and I've never gotten more than a couple pecks of good pears off them. On the brighter side, I'll get a lot more sun on that side
This photo gives me great pleasure. My grandmother had a pear tree on her farm. She raised cattle and when visiting, we were to pickup all the pears (too mealy to eat) and feed them to the cows. My grandmother laughed at us "city girls" as we would hand feed the pears to the bravest of the herd. 😂 Oh we always had such fun. After a long time of this, some got so used to us, that when they saw us, they would come running and bringing the whole herd with them. 😂👏👏 Thanks for the memories. 😋
Thanks for sharing your wonderful "city girl" story, love it! @lovestogarden glad this pic brought back some good times for you. I really could us some cows to help eat them, so many go to waste it's shameful!
