I have been a busy bee and now I am pooped....
I was up at my dad's this morning and we canned pears. I brought home 2 dozen jars and he had around a dozen and a half. I then brought home a grocery bag of pears and made four cups of regular pear sauce and four cups of pear and raspberry sauce, which I'll put in the freezer. To start with my dad wasn't packing the pears tight enough, but even when he packed them tight we still got a lot of space in the jars. Does anyone know why?
The one good thing about this, all the pears were free from my dad's neighbours house, he has so many that he is burying bucketfuls of windfalls each day. I just don't have the time to do anymore at the moment.
