Basic & Simple - Canned Pears & Toast

Basic & Simple - Canned Pears & Toast

Sometimes the most basic and simple food is the most special treat.  When I think back to my childhood I remember some very special after homework treats - as many of you know my mom is the best cook and baker but sometimes simple is the most scrumptious & the most special. 

My dad came up with this taste treat - he took a jar of home canned pears that my mom had canned from the pears that he grew.  Sometimes he would save the pears and just pour a little of that precious pear syrup into a bowl and dip a piece of buttered toast into that pear brine.  There's something about the flavor combination of toasted bread, butter and pears that will make this a comfort treat to treasure!

  1. Hi Angie, I love canned pears and toast, but I’ve never tried them together. I'm going to now though!

    1. Great! - I'm sure that it will become a favorite! Thanks so much for stopping by.

  2. Yes, that is true, simple truly is best. LOL. My mom would make us buttered toast sprinkled with cinnamon sugar and we loved it.

  3. We love pears at our house! We are almost out go our canned pears, it has been a long winter.
