Snow pears is best to eat around the New Year. This is a great recipe to save the healthy fruit for the winter.
In late September pick or buy pears, put them in a dark, cool place. Make sure they do not touch each other.
When the pears become soft and darkened under bark put them in big a plastic or glass barrel. layer leaves of cherry, layer of pear, layer leaves of the vine, layer pears and doing so until barrel is full. (make sure the last layer are leaves)
Pour water into a barrel, at the top put something heavy and leave to stand for one month in dark and cool place.
