The pears were on the hard side. I decided to preserve them as a straightforward way of softening them up. Did you know if you don't tell your suddenly fussy five year old that you made them yourself she will assume that you found a nicer brand of tinned pears??!! Sigh.
Given we are still harvesting jersey bennie potatoes from our garden I was a little unsure of what to do with so many potatoes. But then I remembered my husband's signature potato dish: potato gratin. We like it garlicky, full of pepper and nutmeg and NO CHEESE!! This is beautiful, rich and very much a meal to make for good friends. We have no planned guests tonight, so I think we will have a couple of days of delicious potato side dish.
I'm going to keep an eye out for these deals. I love being able to get such fresh fruit and veges, at a great price and delivered on a day of my choosing. The freshness of the produce has been a real inspiration, enough at least for me to produce an entire colander of pear and potato skins for the worm farm today!
