This Bread is crusty on the outside with a soft and delicious inside. The ingredients and recipe is not very different from a traditional bread recipe however the way it’s baked in a covered dutch oven is what gives it the beautiful looks and the crusty texture.

I had about 5 pounds of Bartlett pears that were overripe so I had to decide between pear jam and pear nectar, we went for the nectar this time especially since my kids love nectar. Pears are so flavorful and the nectar saves all the fall aromas not to mention that my kitchen smelled great.
