The Peaches are Here
Now is the time for over ripe sweet peaches. Our neighbor, Nancy, is deep in her kitchen canning peaches. Hot water, jars, lids, peaches and sugar. All are chopped and semi skinned to put into quart jars for a hot water bath. A single peach pit is put into each can for flavor and color. In 30 minutes the jars will be sealed and in 24 hours ready for storage. Fresh summer sweet peaches all year long for pies, muffins or desserts. It is a lot of prep work and organization to can; however the results are very rewarding. I start my canning tonight.
