It’s peach season!

Well, I better say it’s the bitter end of peach season and I squeaked into the local orchard, while picking up my kids from school, and bought their last 4 boxes of peaches! 

Then they sat in the cold storage for a bunch of days because I was too busy to deal with them. 

But then hubby came home and helped me make 2 boxes of them into Peach Pie Filling.  We got 9 quarts of canned Peach Pie Filling, and 6 3/4 quarts that we put into freezer bags.  Yumm!!!  I know it’s going to be delicious!  I keep imagining just eating it on vanilla ice cream!



The peaches were kinda small because I got the last ones, but they were still very sweet and delicious!




I still have 2 boxes of peaches left, so a couple days ago I made a batch of Peach Jam.  I think it turned out pretty nice and the recipe was very simple!  Just Peaches, Sugar, Orange Juice, and Lemon Juice.  It didn’t even call for Pectin, which is why I wanted to try the recipe!




I got 7 tiny jars and 3 larger jars from the single batch.  I’m definitely going to make more of this and double the recipe!  Maybe I’ll have some time to do it tonight!
