If you can't find the recipe let me know and I'll dig through my recipes to
find it.

I've taken some photos of the bed and will take more as more of the plant
come into bloom.  When I finish the current roll and get them developed I'll
find a way to post them and let you know.

Oooo, I have that book! I'll look it up. Thanks a heap Terry!  Your previous
post about your new garden along your driveway sounds wonderful and lush!
Please do take some pictures and let us all know where you've posted them.

Pears also make wonderful chutney.  If I remember correctly the Ball Blue
Book has a very good recipe.

Alice, if you do turn out to have a big crop of good pears, another
preservation technique is to dry them.  Pears are easy to dry. You don't
have to skin them, and I just use a Vegomatic to slice them, core and all.
Once they're dehydrated, you can pick out seeds as you eat them.  Margaret L
