Here they are... or at least one basket full.. Thank Goodness, Clay helped me peel, pare & core them and we managed to get 15 quart jars from a 40# lug. They were kind of expensive this year, but well worth the freshness...and I insisted on Bartletts.
I didn't think they would be ready until tomorrow but Surprise! Today was canning day! Don't they look pretty? They are ready to put on my pantry shelf. Now we can go on our road trip... next week, so I guess they ripened in the right time...afterall.
