I hate canning peaches.
(and by "usual" I mean I haven't done it for like 9 years! I pretend in my head I do it each year when really I just freeze a bushel of peaches for smoothies and oatmeal and muffins instead.)
I don't like the sticky and the mess and the long day....and once again, this year I just wasn't up for it.
So instead we made peach butter. Which made my kitchen sticky and messy and took all day long. ;)
I'll be honest..I actually hate canning peaches. It's the worst!
I'd rather buy them or not eat peaches at all if I have to can them....
that's how much I really don't like canning peaches. I really, really don't like canning peaches.
Not to be mistaken with I don't like canning...just not peaches.
But peach butter...well that's a different story.
Oh how I love you peach butter...
You tasted so good on my 8,000 calorie piece of homemade pound cake I spread you all over tonight.
50 million hours later, 11 pints and 4 jelly jars full of oh-so-delicious peach butter were cooling on the counter. The recipe came from here should you want to give it a try. You will not be disappointed.
Hope your week was off to a good start.
