Pinned It Made It Monday

Yes, I know it's Tuesday. Ü I didn't see Tammy's post up until today.
Today it is snowing. We are suppose to get 2-4 inches. We'll see... Good day to be canning pears!
I have a couple of recipes to share with you.
First is this spaghetti sauce that I canned. It was very yummy and definitely a keeper. Before I just used Mrs. Wages Spaghetti pkgs that you add to your tomato juice, but I ran out and needed to get the tomatoes done, so searched Pinterest and came up with this recipe.
Then with our pear tree full of fruit, I was needing some pear recipes.
I made this recipe:
Bunny's Warm Oven: Old Fashioned Pear Dessert, it's delicious!

 was not impressed with the crust at all, BUT loved the filling, so decided to make lots of it and can it.
Last night, I went out and picked all the pears up off the ground and there were 7 five gallon buckets, plus probably a couple more left on the ground. I will be canning pears in my sleep!
But we needed to can them all as the tornado this summer took our other tree, so not sure we will get any fruit next year. You have to have 2 pear trees to cross pollinate. Guess we will be looking for trees next spring. (also lost an apple tree and it split another one we aren't sure we will keep)
I am linking this up to Country Girl at Home for her Pinned It Made It Monday challenge.


  1. Amazing! I love canned goodies and I'm sure your home smells incredible!

  2. Great canned goods, looks like you've been more than busy. Now that I look at the map, you are getting snow, I've just had rain rain rain and now wind. Don't work too hard.

  3. Your canned goods look great! We didn't do much canning this year, but we usually do :)

  4. Good for you! They look good and I need to do more canning than I do. Like someone else said, I bet your house smelled so good!

    Thanks for participating in Pinned it Made it Monday! And have a great week!
