Canned spiced pear halves (with cinnamon and nutmeg, for instance; and
if I remember right how I used to make these, also some sugar. I can
try to find the recipe if you want.). Pear pies.
I don't know why more people don't make pear pie. Pears make great pie.
Fill up the pie crust with sliced pears; add sugar to taste and
according to the sweetness of the particular pears, a little flour
according to the juiciness of the particular pears, a little cinnamon
and nutmeg; bake like apple pie. (Admittedly you can't market these
like jelly; but if you have a local market, I think they would sell.)
