First Time for Everything

Tim is the resident 'canner' in our house. He has much more experience and natural ability than I. However, there is a first time for everything. I love canned pears and have been feeling inner urges to get a box of luscious ripe yellow goodness and put it away for the winter. So, with tutorials from my capable mother, jealous husband (who was at a cooking school demonstrating his hummus), and faithful laptop, I was able to finish eight jars of pears last night! They all made their happy little popping sounds, so I think I was successful!
