Today I am thankful for the generosity of friends!
I have been trying to stock up on produce while it is in season so that we will have healthy eating options during winter. I’ve discovered that once you start looking for food, you begin to see it all around you. This summer I found wild blackberries in abundance. Last year I found a black walnut tree in our backyard. Today I remembered that my friends Joy and Molly have a pear tree in their backyard that they don’t really pick from. I asked if I could pick in exchange for some pear butter, and they were happy to oblige!
So I did what I am assuming all good gatherers do, and I went over with my laundry basket.
And I filled it up!
I will be making pear sauce (like applesauce) and pear butter this weekend! Thanks Joy and Molly.
