I mentioned earlier that I had plans to go Peach picking with my friends the Leavitts and the Kirkhams. We went and it was lots of fun! Mary was up in the tree, and Tiffani had Madi (mary's daughter) on her shoulders to reach peaches. We were all picking them.
I took a huge bucket home and so did Tiffani. Mary already had them coming out of her ears because she had already picked them. I knew I wanted to can them, but I didn't know how. So, I called Shirley, my mother-in-law. We went over last Saturday (so over a week ago) and we canned peaches and we made jam. It was so easy and so much fun! Shirley had mentioned that hearing the cans go "Pop" was music to your ears. I kinda laughed and thought that was funny. Then it was our turn. We cooked them and did all we were suppose to do. Then, we sat and waited for the famous POP. Then we heard one, then another and another. What a glorious sound!
After the peaches we made Peach Jam. I don't even like jam, but this tasted so wonderful! I know the kids will love it. It was such a fun day. I think I am going to get a few flats of strawberries and make those into jam also. YUM!!!! Who knew I could be so domestic?
P.S. We made more than is pictured!
