Salsa and Peaches, not Peach Salsa....
We finished up the last batch of salsa. Oh, my, we did 18 pints and 14 quarts. I hope that's enough to last till next year. Jacob can eat a pint at one sitting with a bag of chips.
We bought 10 boxes of peaches on Laterial A in Yakima area for $10 per box.
Each box weighed at least 26 lbs. We only bought 1 box of sweet necterines for $8 and sure wish we had bought more because they were sooooo good!
Then we canned peaches. Jacob and Emily were great at filling 99 jars!
We also filled the dehydrator full. Oh, they are so good too.
They are hidden in the pantry for a cold winter day's treat.
The kids are already asking when can they eat the canned peaches.
We can peaches with a VERY light syrup of 1 cup sugar to 8 cups of water. They are processed in the steamer canner for
Amazing, all those empty boxes...
Amy made 2 beautiful Peach Blackberry Pies for us that day after she got home from work.
She works as a nanny and had made a Blackberry Pie for them with shortening in the crust.
She wanted to make it at home with the lard we had rendered to see the difference. Even with the same recipe the pie crust made with lard was flakier and tasted better.
