I'd make pear honey (crushed pineapple and pears) if it was me. Most recipes recommend peeling and coring the pears, but you could just core them, blanche them, and put them through a food mill with holes small enough to trap the peels if you have a food mill.

Pear honey is amazing with small green pears. AMAZING! :yum

Made rose petal jelly last night. Really great color. The flavor is not noticeably "rosy", but it is good, and it smells like a bouquet of roses. It's pretty awesome. :yum

Tonight is another try at beautyberry jelly. I'm going to take a little more time with the juice extraction and see if I can improve the color of the final product.

This week at market we have apple butter, cranberry citrus marmalade, tomato pepper jam, rose petal jelly, and green cactus fruit jelly. I am hunting desperately for some more purple cactus pears so that I can make cactus fruit jelly with the amazing color that people want. The green tastes fine, but it just isn't as visually appealing.

I made pear honey last night. I've got to get some small green pears to make more. Dang, that stuff is good! :yum

Pepper jelly is made, but will all go to pre-orders, so I'll need to make more for myself.

This evening is cranberry apple butter, blueberry citrus jam, tomato pepper jam, and muscadine jelly (unless DH gets any of them done before I get home).
