My CSA share this summer includes fruit, which is really fun and decidedly more enjoyable than last summer's copious amounts of eggplant, eggplant, and more eggplant.
What's a girl to do with twenty peaches a week?
Make peach jam! And can it!
This was my second foray into the world of canning-without-actual-canning-equipment, and seems to have been as successful as the apple butter I made a couple of years ago. Canning is so fun and rewarding, I should really do it more often.
In fact, I became so convinced that I should do it more often that the day after I made peach jam, I decided to use my CSA plums to make plum jam, too.
I am eating some of it spread on toast right now. It is a beautiful color and tastes like all the things that are good about life.
Toast and jam for breakfast? I know! I'm usually a green smoothie type of girl! But grey skies and rainy mornings can make anyone crave toast, a cup of tea, and a good book.
