Yes, We Can!

We love to can. Might sound strange if you don't can or find canning a chore. But we enjoy it. Tony's Produce had 20 lb boxes of peaches at a decent price so we carted home a box and started peeling. We made a batch of peach-ginger and a batch of peach-peño. We will get to another batch of plain peach - maybe. Now Seattle is having a heat wave. The idea of a giant pot of boiling water in the kitchen is crazy right now. However, we might crank out a couple peach pies to go directly into the freezer. No cooking required. And who doesn't love homemade pie in the middle of winter?

Your jam is beautiful--so luminous. I made blackberry and strawberry jam this year, and I'm planning to try marmalade this winter.

Rowdy, thanks! We did tomatoes this weekend. Will post soon. I really enjoy it. I'll be trying some small batch canning in October to keep my canning muscles limber - maybe a chutney. I'll look forward to the marmalade post.
