I just HAD to share what I’ve been up to. This is totally a new thing for me, I’ve never canned before (aside from a batch of strawberry jam a few years ago) but living here on the island I’m surrounded by the best fruit imaginable. I took a hint from my dear friend Maya and decided to start canning. Peaches are a family fave so I called up my talented Mom and asked her all about canning peaches, she shared her tips and hints with me and I jumped right in.
I thought canning these would be difficult, but it was actually quite easy and so much fun. Especially for Lola who tried to take a bite out of approx. 8 peaches while I was working on this yesterday. Stinker! Needless to say I was pretty proud of my accomplishment – 10 quart jars of peaches canned and ready to enjoy. The best part for me was knowing that I only had a short window of time yesterday, and I decided to fill it with producing something so worthwhile for my family. I love that feeling – imagine what I could do with a whole day!
Today I woke up and decided to try making Peach Honey, it’s AMAZING AMAZING! (want the recipe??)
