Canning Peaches

I realize that this image is not one of my landscapes or animal photos, but I could not resist the color and texture of these freshly canned peaches. These bottles come from the efforts of one of my daughters. I love peaches and it is always a treat to have canned peaches when they are out of season. Somehow, home canned peaches taste so much better than those that come in cans. My wife's family was very much involved in canning all sorts of fruits and vegetables. Of course, my own involvement has been limited to a support function, if that, but I do enjoy eating the fruits of their labors. Depending on their circumstances, my sons and daughters and their families have carried on the tradition of canning and preserving. It is nice to know that some of these basic survival skills are still being passed along to a few of those in our highly commercialized world.

  1. I agree home canned peaches are great, just getting ripe here now, so hopefully we will can a box this year, and maybe a couple of peach pies also.
