I was able to find these wonderful red haven peaches at Morgan Farms again this year. They have been so yummy that we bought 3 bushels!
The peeled and pitted peaches are covered with a medium syrup and processed in a boiling water bath for 30 minutes for safety. The old faithful canning kettle holds seven quarts at a time.
It takes a while for the wide-mouth jars to cool down. The taste of this fruit on a cold winter night is well worth all the time and effort to prepare it.
Some of the peaches were cooked with oranges, lemon zest, and sugar. The result is a wonderful peach marmalade -- A treat for winter mornings!
I am so jealous! We've had bad luck with peaches this year and I would give my left arm for even one bushel of magnificent ones. But I wouldn't can them -- I would EAT THEM!!!!
Wish we could share them with you! Even with all the canning we did, we're still eating them every day!
