Done! 7 pints of peach preserves. And I nearly made a disastrous mistake - too much sugar. Julia got to watch her mama do bad math: 8 + ____ = 11. Mama said 5. Oops. Thankfully, I was able to retrieve the excess sugar before it was too late. Since it's full of peach juice, I'll add it to the EXTRA GALLON OF CHOPPED PEACHES I have leftover.
We have a lot fruit in this house! I think people look at me and think, "She cans." Then, if they have any fruit at their houses, they bring it to me, so it won't go to waste. Well, maybe not, but lately it feels that way. I did strawberry preserves, and peach preserves, but I didn't do plums. Plums was too much.
Time for lunch. BLT sandwich.
