this weekend we actually had some fall weather! we decided to fill our house with the the aroma of fall and make some pear cider. this recipe is such a great way to enjoy the country pears that many of us have growing in our yards. the pears that never seem to ripen, but are actually quite tasty!
here is a recipe for fall pear cider that is so simple and will have your house smelling like fall for days!
-fill a crock pot with pears, washed and quartered (seeds and stems are fine)
-add 1 orange, peeled
-add 6 cinnamon sticks
-pour water over pears and fill to the top of the crock pot leaving 1 1/2 inches
-let cook all day or overnight
-mash the pears with a potato masher
-drain juice through cheese cloth or a fine colander
-enjoy....outside on the porch is best!
