Pears and Lemons

Exhaustion is setting in as I type this up.  We bottled 2 bushels of pears for a total of 51 quarts of pears.  We used just over a quarter of a bushel of pears to fill the dehydrator too! It must be fall!


In case you are in need of a treat this lemon ice cream was recently a hit around this neck of the woods!
