Learn to make delicious preserved pears, floating in delicate cardamom syrup, from fresh, local pears!


A special treat for you, divine when warmed and served over ice cream, or given as a thoughtful gift.. these preserved Pears in Cardamom Syrup are simply delicious.  You'll have friends asking you for more!  Capture the taste of the harvest, and eat local pears all winter!  You'll learn how to preserve, make the syrup and recipe from scratch, and can it safely.  We'll be using local pears, sustainably grown from one of our Producer-members.
