Lynsuz:I have a pear tree at new home that makes tons of pears...but are not good to eat right off the tree? Is this the answer? Core, peel, simmer in suagar and water until soft? The neighbors tell me they are "canning pears" but I wonder as the tree is flowering and soon I will have a yard full of pears that make a big mess. I never know what to do with them and F'sure mowing over them is not the answer...LOL. Thank you in advance.
