with the move to the house on the lake there hasn’t been much fancy exciting cooking going on, we took the smaller grands to pick peaches, oh what a time they had!
you know you’re getting close when the see the big peach in the air!
boy was it hot! but that didn’t stop the fun!
funny how they disappear when there’s work to be done lol! peach jam & canned peaches done!
when it comes to peaches I don’t drain mine like the sure box suggest I like to know I’m eating peach jam, I cut them as small as I can then mash well with my masher, sometimes in a blender but I took them to the new house & had to work with what I had
the canned peaches are in light syrup made by mixing 3 parts water to one part sugar, I usually make 2-3 batches at a time depending on how many peaches I have
mix & heat, pour over peaches in jars, slide a knife down the sides to remove any air bubbles
water bath for 25 min.
now to go looking for blackberries! there’s a place that we go to every year for wild blackberries & wild plums
