Q: Our neighbor has a pear tree, and he is very generous in giving us buckets of them when they are ripe. The problem is, I'm not sure what to do with them! Last year I tried making jam (weird texture), "pear sauce" (tasty, but we had way more than we could eat), and canned pears (ditto). Any good pear recipes or ideas?

I would especially be interested in a recipe for pear balsamic vinegar. Thanks!
