Peachy Keen….

Saturday was just a peach of a day -

My wonderful customers and employees have shared some amazing vegetables and fruits with me this summer. Saturday I put up 9 Quarts of peaches in my freezer ready to pull out this winter- won’t they be great in December? Let me tell you how to put them up the quick way!! My sister taught me this – you know between us we are a world of knowledge on the home front! She takes care of all things involving food ( she is a Homemaking teacher ,after all) And I cover the sewing part and decorating/making part. It makes it really fun that together we can figure out just about anything. So without further adieu -

1. Bring  a large pan of water to almost boil – really hot!

Place your peaches in the pan for about 1 or 2 minutes


2. Take them out of the hot water and immediately place in Ice water to cool down.


3. After these 2 steps they are ready to peel. That makes this a breeze! The peels just slide off.


4. Cut up in to slices and sprinkle with fruit fresh and sugar. I put 4 cups in each quart bag.DSC03319

That’s it – can you believe how easy – breezy that was?

Ok, now what can I make with my peaches?

Got to go get to baking – Hope you are having a peachy summer – I am!

Your peaches look so very yummy !
I love peaches so much that we planted 4 peach trees when we moved to Texas ~ We have 2 varieties so when 2 of them were all gone then the other 2 were just ripening ~
It is fun to have them !
