So Friday we went up to Brigham City and picked 6 bushels of peaches, we got 2 bushels, my friend got 3 and her neighbor wanted 1. I cannot believe how many peaches we got. I stressed all night Friday and all day Saturday about what to do with them.
So here it is...
Blanch them in water for 1-2 mins.
Then peel the skin off and slice them.
Put them in jars with sugar water...how to make sugar water? 3 cups of sugar for every quart of water, it gets you through about 3 quarts of jars with peaches in them.
Then process for 25-30 mins.
Then flip them upside down until they seal. Which is normally about an hour.
We got 28 quarts and 9 pints of canned peaches.
A good portion of the seeds.
I also made jam and holy crap it is AMAZING...
This is simple, I buy the instant pectin by Bell and follow their directions, it seriously takes 5 mins and I did 3 batches of these.
I got 23 jars of jam and I'm sure we're good on jam for quite some time.
And this is all the jars minus 6 processing and 4 waiting to process.
I love peaches, can you tell?
