Clint and I love going out to Detering's Orchard and picking our own fruit. Then we bring it home and can it ourselves. Which is still fun, but not as fun. I suppose the fun in the canning comes from getting it all done, and seeing the dozen or so cans on a shelf in the garage.
Anyway, we had a great afternoon picking peaches!
When we got home, we canned and canned and canned some more! We also did a little bit of drying, too! I'd say we made a pretty good harvest! Peaches in light syrup, peach salsa, and peach fruit leathers. . . not too shabby!
I'll post our recipes later, along with more description of our canning set-up. . .
