and i wanted to be part of it. and drag along mom and kim. and kelly. we started with 50 lbs (!) of peaches from calhoun family farm in wapato, wa. i love their peaches! and kelly's canning equipment.
mom, kim and i were the peelers and slicers. and kelly, canning guru AND newlywed of less than 2 weeks here, manned the stove and pots. not everyone present thought they had to help. we were organized. we were productive. we had fun. here's our first batch in and out of the water bath.
aren't they pretty? we canned a total of 20 1/2 quarts.
steve and i had a pint over pancakes for breakfast the next morning. they were scrumptious.
