Talkback: Growing pears

Seeing that photograph reminded me that a friend's father used to place a bottle over a fertilised pear and allow it to ripen in the bottle.

When almost ripe the pear and bottle were washed and the bottle filled with a brandy and vodka mix.

Now how do you get the deliciously seeped pear out again?

You don't, that deliciously seeped pear is 90% alcohol! You keep topping the bottle with spirits, the pear must be kept covered. The best spirits to use is Calvados.

We still have a selfgrown pear in a bottle with Calvados that we made over 30 years ago, the pear still looks like new!
