Here is a picture of some of our hard work from yesterday. We processed 2.5 bushels of peaches! They are so yummy! The boys couldn't stop eating them! We canned 27 qts of peaches and made 5 batches of fruit slush for the freezer. This is the recipe that I used for canning my peaches.
Peaches to can
This first part is optional. :-) I do it because it makes it go faster!
Bring a kettle of water to a boil. Put whole peaches in boiling water for 30 seconds or so (until you can slide the skin with your hands). Remove immediately and put into cold water to cool.
Peel peaches and slice, dice, or cut in halves and fill jars. Sprinkle a little bit of Fruit Fresh (ascorbic acid) on top and add 1 heaping tablespoon of Raw Cane Sugar. Fill jars with water. Process in a water bath for 1 minute. (That means put the jars in water up to their necks and bring to a rolling boil. Time for 1 minute. :-) )
How do you can your peaches?
Have a blessed day!
