My Peaches just came in!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Well, my Peaches finally came in. Everything is running almost a month late this year!
Not my biggest by far, but better that the zero I got last year!
This is whats left after what the critters and bugs got!



Managed to get a few nice ones though.









These are all going into Jam. In a good year I'll also can whole peach halves and maybe get a pie or cobbler.

Getting blanched



And into the ice bath



Now the real work begins, pealing and pitting.
Here they are all done



Getting some jam made



Jam cookin in the pot



All done!!! Got 20 1/2 pints of jam



Now just have to label and store. This might hold me fo a few months.
Thanks for lookin!!!

Oooohhhhhh you betcha!! Warm the jam up and put over some good Vanilla ice cream. drool.gif Some years I have problems with getting a good set on it. This year all seems to have gone well, all jars have set. Peaches seem to be tempramental about that as they have little natural pectin. So I end up with compote basically. But it works well on ice cream and in glazes and finishing sauces........It's all Goooood! icon14.gif
