These peaches were dropped off at our place last night by one of hubby's workmates.
So guess who got the job of peeling, stoning and cuttingand preserving.
22 jars of peach preserves, 1/2 of which will be given back to hubby's workmate.
The leftovers will be made into jam.
The jars below are Bertolli Spagetti jars, and work just fine for preserving when we have run out of Fowler's jars. They need to be the poptop variety of jar. For those that want to know more about Fowlers preserves go here.
It was a cooler day here today with a temperature of 32C (89.6F).
Tomorrow's forecast is 36C (96.8F).
Hotting up again to 40C (104F) by Sunday.
We collected ds books this morning ready for school. Tonight he has been putting his name on all the books, pencils etc. We have purchased a new pencil case and lunch box as well. Uniform is all organised, he starts high school next Wednesday, and is getting a little nervous.
I had a new 6 month old baby start care with me today and our grandson came over for most of the day, so I wasn't much help with the peaches. Hubby would like to try apricots, but we will have to wait until our two trees bear fruit, next year hopefully.
Hope you are all keeping well,
Until next time,
