There are not as many apples and pears as usual this year. But there are enough pears to make a couple of big batches of pear sauce to freeze in. This is my favorite topping for oatmeal mush in the morning.  

This variety of pear is very delicious, but I don’t know the name. They are green-grey when ripe, and don’t keep very long, so they have to be eaten or made into something within a week or two.
