Peach Preserves
« on: October 05, 2018, 04:37:51 PM »
   My lone peach tree out in my pasture did itself proud this year. They are small, cling, white peaches and most were not much bigger than a golf ball. I had to cut around the bruises and worms. (Note to self: Don't just spray pre-bloom next year, spray again after the blooms drop off too.) I collected, peeled, cut up and froze about 4 gallons of peaches over a couple week period. Today I thawed them. I started with 15 lbs of frozen peaches, added 10 lbs of sugar, about a half cup of lemon juice (all we had left in the house) and about a pint or so of orange juice. The acid is needed to help the jam/jelly/preserves set. I divided the mix into two big aluminum pans and cooked them down till thick with only one boil-over. When the syrup thickened satisfactorily I poured them up. I used up all the pint and half pint jars left in the house and still had to use one quart jar for the last pint of preserves. Now I'm just waiting for the lids to snap shut and I'll label and take them downstairs till used. I suspect a big batch of homemade biscuits is on the menu for tonight and for breakfast especially since my 6 & 10 y/o granddaughters are supposed to be coming over to spend the night.

  Peach preserves are good but they always remind me of Ray Stevens "Its me again Margaret"

 Larger pot just starting to cook.

 Getting the jars ready to start pouring. A plastic canning funnel is an essential tool if you do much canning.

 Here are 21 pints of finished preserves. Even have a big jar of Crunchy Peanut butter in the background waiting for them to cool.
