I am thankful for delicious, juicy peaches and a mom who knows how to can and lives near by so we can work together on projects like these. I *think* I'm learning a lot about canning each time we do it so hopefully one day if I have to do it on my own I 'can'! (Ha.)
Slicing, de-pitting, and skinning peaches

Soaking/cleaning them before skinning them
We now have 28 large jars of canned peaches. While we think I may have been cheated out of 2 bushels (I was given two boxes that actually equal 1 bushel but I paid for 2 bushels ... hmmm) they are so yummy and they were perfectly ripe today so they were easy to work with ... I'm very thankful for the delicious results we'll get to enjoy this next year!
"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven:
a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot ...
I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and do good while they live. That everyone may eat and drink and find satisfaction in all their toil - this is a gift from God."
