FEELING PEACHY?

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!

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

LIGHT SYRUP

3c. water

1c. sugar

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
