Putting up peaches the easy way

077

This is a post I meant to write a couple of months ago. Sigh.

At the end of the summer a dear friend gifted me with a half-bushel of local peaches – talk about a good gift!

I feel so blessed to live in Alabama where we have access to a wide variety of local food year round.

I’m trying my hand at a fall/winter garden this year, and I’m longing for broccoli, turnips, and spinach!

Our weather is just now cooperating and accommodating to cool season veggies.

But, back to the peaches… these are soooo good!

I really meant to get a batch of preserves made, but it didn’t happen.

I have a feeling that my family won’t mind all the winter cobblers we’ll be having when there’s no more fresh fruit.

The freezer is stocked!

Very nice! My fondest memory this summer was picking and putting up peaches. They were so bright and pretty. I know you'll enjoy these this winter!

Teri, it's my BEST and oldest friend. I don't deserve her thoughtfulness, for sure!

Diane, there's nothing like picking and putting up your own procuce, is there? I find I'm much more appreciative of my food when I've actually labored for it. : )
