Last week, my husband and I went to the Western Slope of Colorado for the day and came home with 75 pounds of freshly picked peaches.
As you can imagine, I have been very busy in the kitchen making wonderful things with all the peaches.
Since my friend, Michael Jacobs said he wanted to see pictures of peaches, I thought I would oblige with this post.
Every year I "put up" enough peach jam to keep us in stock for the year and make lots of extra for family and friends. So far, I think I have made about 48 jars of peach jam and have given away about a dozen.
I also can sliced peaches for those cold winter days when we just
need a fresh sweet treat. They make a great side dish with pork.
I am now down to my last box of peaches and its not quite full. I have made 5 peach pies, of which I froze two and gave the rest away.
Today may be a peach break day to give my feet and arms a rest, but I will be back at it tomorrow.
I'm pretty sure apple season will soon be upon us.... hmmmm.
