Well, I had fun on top of a ladder, with a 'fruit picker' getting down enough pears to can 6 pints! While at it, I also did 6 pints o tart applesauce, the apples can be picked from the ground, so far. I still see pears way up there, but don't know how to get them down. A couple fell, and broke their little necks when they hit the ground. They are very sweet.
I do have another pear tree, and will try the pear butter on them - that tree is also tall, though...but we'll see.
The next thing is dealing with the canner. UGH.
