Thu Oct 16, 2008 8:52 pm (PDT) This was originally my grandmother’s recipe for plum cake. It is really the old Gerber Baby Food cake from many years ago but I think that my grandmother added some bits. My mother’s birthday this year was sort of a thrown together brief celebration. She got out of the hospital on her 66th birthday, I had run to the store to pick up some bread and the only cake I found that I thought she would like was a miniature loaf of banana walnut bread. The texture reminded me of my grandmother’s plum cake and so I thought I would try using banana flavored baby food instead of plum baby food. BTW, you can’t buy plum baby food any more, Gerder marketing discontinued it – the only thing you can get is plum with apple and it does not taste the same.

Pear Honey

  • 9 pounds of pears
  • 7 pounds of sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups honey
  • 1 cup vinegar
  • 1 stick cinnamon, 3 inches long

Peel, core and quarter (smaller pieces if you want) pears. Add 4 pounds of sugar and 1 cup of vinegar. Let stand overnight to draw out the juices. In the morning, drain the juice into a large kettle. Add the remaining 3 pounds of sugar and cinnamon stick, broken up. Bring to a boil and add the pears. Reduce heat and cook slowly about 2 hours or until the syrup has a light reddish (honey) color with a little bit of shine to it and pears are transparent. Pack into hot jars and seal. Process as your would for any preserves.
