Pare, halve and core pears; chop to make 1 cup. In large mixer
bowl, beat oil and sugar until well blended. Beat in eggs, one
at a time; add sour cream and vanilla. Sift together flour, salt,
soda, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add to oil-sugar mixture and continue
to beat until well blended. Add nuts and pears; mix well with
a large spoon. Spoon into well-greased 9 x 5-inch loaf pan. Bake
at 350 degrees for 1 hour, or until toothpick comes out clean.
Cool in pan 10 to 15 minutes. Turn out and cool on rack.
