I am so discouraged!

Hanky | Sep 27, 2008 09:50 AM

We have a pear tree that is absolutely loaded but I can't get the pears to ripen. Everything that I read says not to let them ripen on the tree and we have tried every suggestion for ripening. We've had them on the counter, in a brown bag with a banana, in a brown bag with an apple. We've wrapped them in newspaper and put them in a box. We've put them in a cool,dark place. Nothing! I want to make pear butter but am lost.
Any suggestions please?
Thanks!
