Peachy Keen

Do you have 5 hours? No, not to read this post, but to can your own peaches? That’s about how long it took me to can 8 pint jars of juicy peaches. Of course, there was the requisite kitchen cleaning that took about half an hour.

I have family who have requested canned peaches for Christmas. Not that we grow the best peaches in Ohio, but that here at Combs Canyon, we can them no one else. This was my first attempt at canning. My husband is a natural and I tend to do more prep work. Having time off mid-week has its perks, though. I haven’t popped open the jar only half-filled with the straggling slices, so I do not know yet if they taste okay. The hardest part is finding good peaches. You can’t preserve them into deliciousness.

That said, enjoy the pictures I took along the way and happy weekend!
