A dear friend of mine invited us fruit picking at her place and we had a fantastic time roaming all over. We ended up with a whopping entire basketful of 2 different sorts of peaches and 2 different sorts of plums. There is nothing tastier in my opinion, than fresh, organic fruit, straight from the tree.
So we got to preserving!
I haven't preserved anything for a long while due to being so unwell and the last time I did, it wasn't all that successful. But with some advice from another forager friend who is putting up her own preserves at the moment (see her blog here - Adventures In Preserving )
Then we traded a Jar of Peaches for some home grown Zucchinis - some didn't even make it to the kitchen...Hatchling Lass ate nearly the whole thing!!!
...then the last bit was finished off by Hatchling Lad.
DragonPapa has already eaten a jar or two of peaches, so it looks like I am going to have to hurry up and do more!
