Hi! I’m C.
The Whitty Pear is where I keep track of my crafting projects, the books I read, the places I visit, and the recipes I make. Oh, and Life more generally.
Recipes are often adapted from Delia Smith’s Cakes, or from the Hummingbird Bakery recipe books. Any other recipes or adaptations will be noted with the recipe.
What is a Whitty Pear?
Well, it’s an alternative name for the rowan tree, specifically for Sorbus domestica, and the rowan is considered in folklore to be the ‘wayfarer’s tree’, preventing travellers from getting lost, or of being a ‘portal’ tree, standing between here and there (either this world and another world, or where you are now and where you are going).
Hopefully it’ll keep me from getting lost along the way!
