Canned Peaches

Blow up your T.V. throw away your paper
Go to the country, build you a home
Plant a little garden, eat a lot of peaches
Try an find Jesus on your own
Used the Ball Blue Book method for canning peaches, hotpack style. You boil them briefly, then put in icewater in order to slip the skins. Then simmer them briefly in a medium syrup -- 2.5 c sugar to 5 cups water, something like that. Then hot peaches into hot jar, put on hot cap, tighten band a bit, finally into boiling water for 25 min (quart) or 20 min (pint jar).
I made 3 quart jars and 3 pint jars of peaches. They're going to be tasty in January...
