Our pear tree: still going strong
When I grew up we had this pear tree. My granny used to peel them for me. They tasted of Summer and my granny's love.

About three years ago we moved into my granny's old house. The pear tree is still going strong, offering us her fruits! In fact this year we have so many pears, it's impossible to eat them all before they go bad. So we've taken to cooking them.

At first we added sugar and water, but we soon discovered there was no need to add anything. It's enough to just put the pears in a pan, put it on the stove and then very gently cook them. The pears produce their own juices.

So now I've got this great free ánd healthy snack for the kids.

And you know what? Even though we made it, I can still taste my granny's love.
