My friend Angie came down for the day and we took on the adventure of canning peaches for the first time. We had 100 pounds of peaches and it ended up making 54 quarts of peaches along with 8 pints of peach jelly. I will admit it wasn't the most enjoyable experience what with a majority of the pits splitting and having all kinds of unmentionable things inside said split pits. I was so thankful to have a friend to do it with, we grumbled and laughed together. We tried to find the "blessing" in our predicament but I think it was our time together and the many many months of canned goods we will be enoying.
Yes that's my empty chai latte, it was needed after 9 hours of canning.
