    Molly53's Note:

    A spicy memory of sweet summer from Pennsylvania Dutch country. Any good preserving pear may be used, but the Seckel is preferred. From the US Regional Cookbook, Chicago Culinary Arts Institute, 1947. Cooking time is approximate. While this recipe is written in an old-fashioned way, it is perfectly safe if processed using modern methods.

      Last week with our CSA box delivery we received Seckel pears. I've only eaten them once or twice before and for that reason it was a rare treat. I pickled only two seckels (and left them whole) which meant luckily that there was no canning involved because a few hours later after pickling the pears we ate them with our dinner. The leftover boiled juice (not much more than 1/3 cup) will be saved to make a salad dressing and I will whisk in some local pear honey. Delicious! Dinner: Fontina & Sage Grilled Cheese, Tomato Soup and the pickled pears. Thanks for posting this recipe!
