I received a lovely basket of fresh peaches from a friend. She stripped her peach tree because the critters were starting to devour them. So I spent a chunk of yesterday afternoon putting some of them up. I got through 5 pounds of them and there is still at least that much left. There's a couple of jars of chutney and four jars of pickled peaches. I'm also trying peach flavored vinegar, which uses the peels and pits. I haven't tasted any of these goodies yet, but when I do, and if they are good enough, I'll post the recipes.
Next up is a batch of peach jam. And then I'm sure there will be enough fruit left to make ice cream or sorbet.
