It's pear time in the South! The tree's limbs are breaking with juicy fresh pears. The following is my grandmother's recipe that kept a pantry full of wonderful pickles, perserves, and the good things of the summer garden in stock. She was 94 yrs. old and a cute, petite lady with 8 children and many grandchildren, great-grandchildren who loved going on Sundays to eat at her house and always having pear pickles! Hope you enjoy. I just got this recipe from my Aunt who now lives in Cullman, AL and she is now 88 yrs. old and the spitting image of that sweet little grandmother of my daddy's family.
