Sewing has taken a back seat this week as I work my way through the produce I bought to can. Along with those 40lbs of tomatoes, I brought home 40lbs. of peaches. I LOVE fresh peaches. Truly nothing says summer to me the way a fresh ripe peach does. When they were first in season, I came home with a 20lb. box for eating... and we devoured every single one within that week. Obviously, double that amount wouldn't see us too far, but I thought I could at least can some for the winter months from that amount.

Once those peaches were at the peak of ripeness, I set to work. Now, I don't like a heavy syrup on them because I want to taste the peach - not some sugar laden syrup. Once again, I messed around with recipes until I came up with one that suites our family's taste and it doesn't use any sugar! I actually used honey for my canning syrup. I know the canning books don't recommend this, but in all the years I've been using honey rather than sugar, I've had no problems. They are delicious!
|Obviously, I didn't can every peach on hand. I had to leave some for my morning oatmeal! lol|
