Ah, Peaches, we are so lucky to get locally grown peaches, love it, they are really only available for a few weeks a year and the good prices on them (well, now a day’s good prices) are maybe one or two weeks and buying in bulk can help or not, depending on where you are shopping.
I am out of canned local peaches, which meant that I had planned to put up 48 pints of peaches and I had planned another 12 pint jars of peach pie filling but my plans have been tweeked with my broken foot..
But the peaches still came into season and so I got six baskets, each basket cut up into six cups of peaches approx. and while I can’t quite yet stand to can yet, I can stand long enough to wash them, and get the prep ready, they got cut into my slices, six slices per peach and they went into freezer bags and while I don’t like freezer peaches anywhere close to canned, I have enough put away that I can do 14 pies or cobblers etc
I look at it as I can have fresh local peaches as a treat over the next year, or I can not have peaches, I won’t buy the ones from the store the rest of the year, and I won’t buy canned peach pie filling.
Suddenly frozen peaches sound lovely! LOL
Yesterday, we had a lovely treat, fresh peaches with homegrown rasberries
