|Orr's Farm Market|
This is one huge farm providing fruits and vegetables for the local community since 1954. Tourists have also found their way to the Farm. This time peaches, plums, apples, and pears were ready for harvesting.
The farm is situated in the valley between the Blue Ridge and Appalachian Mountains. It is fantastic to see such an abundance of fruit in one place. The fruit and vegetables are picked for you but berries are available for your own picking.
I combined the chopped pears with two (2) cups of sugar and let it come to a boil, stirring often. Once the sugar was dissolved, I let it simmer for about 40 minutes. I kept on stirring often while simmering.
It is easy to double this recipe or even triple it. Adding some cinnamon pieces and a few whole cloves will give the jam an interesting taste.
Finally,I poured the hot jam into clean jars and sealed the them with hot wax.
There is no doubt that I have left a bit of myself in the mountains of Wild Wonderful West Virginia with its kind people, beautiful scenery, flora and fauna.
Thank you for visiting my blog.
Have a great weekend.
