Since I have been on the subject of fruit trees this week I wanted to post some photos from last summer. I didn't know Peaches grew here in Arizona... but move over Georgia cause we have peaches too... In fact last year was a bumper crop (2008) of peaches!
I went peach picking with my family at a farm not 3 miles from my home.
Brought them home and made Jam...
I have one jar left...
Just in time to enjoy before peach season rolls around again this June.
(Sometimes we don't get peaches though it depends on Mother Nature)
Peaches heavy on the trees
You can eat all you want while picking.
Sorted and washed...
ready to blanch...
peel and slice.
Cooking down with the sugar and pectin...
Filling the jars with the fresh golden jam.
Hot water bath for the jars of jam.
Hot water bath for my pots...
Thanks to Hubby
