Busy Day Ahead

I have a 1/2 bushel of B-grade peaches and 1 peck of small pickling cukes in the fridge waiting for me to have some time. This afternoon.

Last night I whipped up a batch of cherry-peach-apricot jam after I got home from work. But I haven't had a whole lot of time since I worked back-to-back 12 hour days over the weekend. I'm psyched to make dill pickles with whole cukes rather than sliced and, when I found the tiny cukes at a farm stand, HAD to have them!

(Later today...) Grand total is 7 quarts of dill pickles, 7 quarts of peaches in syrup, and 3 quarts of bread and butter pickles. Still have a lot of peaches left but finished off all the cucumbers. I am officially out of jars. And space in my pantry.

  1. I'd been meaning to ask where you were putting all this stuff.

  2. On the floor, apparently. Not sure where else to go. Maybe I can commandeer the space alongside the fridge.
