(Recipe #16, page 70)
Unpeeled pears are appropriate. Rub them several times with warm water between your hands, rinse, and set on the stove with a piece of bacon, covered with plenty of water.
Boil until almost soft, then sprinkle some groats over them, add the cooked potatoes and salt, and stew until the whole is quite soft, creamy, and moist.
