Using the damaged red pears

As some of our red pears have started to fall and get damaged by landing on the gravel (and no, we can't put anything down else Ruby will run away with it), I thought how to use them - pear crumble was the decision.

3 pears were prepared, plus 3 plums and added to a dish plus just 1 teaspoon of sugar over the plums:
Our weekly loaf had nearly finished baking, this time white seeded:
Once out, the oven temperature was reduced to 160C and in went the crumble for 40 minutes:
The crumble topping had the luxury of butter and ground almonds added (not a wartime usage) but it could have been made with margerine and had less topping put on it!

Have a lovely weekend everyone!

  2. Have you considered using something like this? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Garden-Plant-Fruit-Protect-Bags-Sac-Net-Mesh-Against-Insect-Pest-Bird-HE/232703925609?hash=item362e3c1d69:m:muME-wpDnOrxDNMHLX3THuA I've used them for the first time this year because something (I have no idea what) was stripping the apples from our tree, just as they were ripening. For the first time in 4 years, we have apples. But one of the side effects is that when the apples fall off the tree, they stay in their little bags.

    Of course mine is a miniature apple tree, it's probably impractical if someone is lucky enough to have 100s of fruits :-)

    1. I think I have too many for those but might try a few to see how it goes. Thanks.

  5. The crumble looks wonderful. I love how you figure out ways to use food that someone else might think too damaged to use.

    God bless.
