Want to make your own Pear Preserves or Relish?…..we have the Pears. Great for just eating too! But know that these are the OLD FASHIONED HARD Pears, not Barletts, etc.  They must sit out at room temperature for a few days to get “mellow”, or “meller”, as the original Appalachian mountain folks say.
