I think these "schnitz" might be different from what was discussed
previously as "schnitzel". In this dish the "schnitz" are probably the
pears (sliced and dried). There is a famous Pennsylvania Dutch recipe
called "Schnitz un knepp" which is made with dried apple slices, ham
and knepp (dumplings). "Schnitz" itself is just a "slice".

bacon and fried pears; has the appearance of a mess for the devil; but I
was surprised, on tasting, to find it better than passable.
