Pear Fair- Courtland CA Sun, 07/25/10 3:40 PM (permalink)
Always the last Sunday in July- just got back from this  great celebration of all things Pear in the lazy, quaint  Sacramento Delta town of Courtland ( pop 600- Bartlett Pear Capitol of The World)  complete with Pear Pies, Pear cider, Pear cakes, just about  pear everything , and even an all you can eat pancake breakfast at the old Masonic Hall- best part of the breakfast is the made only once a year , secret recipe . and fantastic pear sausage.... the Pear Fair is  a great little slice of Americana ,long may it thrive!!

      Our neighborhood Crows have taken a liking to our Asian Pears (2 trees). To avoid a total loss of that tasty crop, we picked the trees clean this weekend and used the immature fruit to make two batches of great Pear Butter. Plenty of apples around for the birds to enjoy, but they head for the exotics !!

      Glad to see the celebration of the Pear growers in the Delta. Maybe I should send them a Hoosier Crow or Two!
