When I still lived at home, I used to make different fruit preserves on a somewhat regular basis - only a small mason jar or two at a time - and I flew through it. Peanut or sunflower seed butter and preserve (or jam or jelly) sandwiches, or toasted and buttered English Muffins smothered in it, were fundamental childhood victuals, and remains some of my favorite snacks.
As you know if you've been here a while, I moved into an apartment last July, and since then, I haven't taken the time to mess about in the kitchen and experiment with things like I used to. So, it's been far too long since I made preserves, and I finally decided to remedy that a few weeks ago.
My usual go-to fruits are strawberries and apples, but that day I decided to try something different, and make pear preserves.
So, here we go!
