Peaches Tomorrow AND Today!

Well the farm came through and there was a half-bushel of freestone Elberta peaches waiting for me this morning.  I'm very happy!

The first project with them was a batch of peach jam.  My grandmother used to put one maraschino cherry and one whole almond (without the brown skin) into each jar so I do the same.  But isn't it cool that I can use my homemade maraschino cherries!  I now have 8 jars of jam and more in the fridge and the rest of the bushel will go to peaches in syrup.  Maybe some peach salsa if I get tired of peach wedges.

I'd pulled out 4 peaches but only used 3 for the jam (they're huge) so we ate one.  It was so ripe it was practically disintegrating in our mouths.  Yum!

    1. Big Apple Farm. It's down near the RI border. I have no idea what town it is...Franklin, maybe?
