Peaches and Blackberries

Just a quick [post to say I'm back and show you a bit of what I've been doing. Here is what's left of the 2 bushels of peaches we brought home from GA. We picked 8 gallons of blackberries and 1 gallon of blueberries (those little buggers are hard to pick 'cause it takes so many to make a gallon!)

Some of these will be added to those I've already frozen, some will be eaten fresh (the best way!) and some will be made into cobblers to be shared with my hubby's employees and with friends on the 4th of's what else I've been doing..

72 half pints (I forgot to put the blackberry jam in there!) of jams and peach salsas. I made both medium and mild peach salsas. and the rest are jams...blackberry, peach/blackberry, peach, spiced peach, triple berry, and blueberry.

Be sure to check back as I have several projects from The Cutting Cafe to show you and these jams are going to get dressed up a bit. :-)


Pin It!

WOW, Charlene, you go girl!!!!! There is just something about homemade jam, marmelade is what we call it in Germany when there are whole fruits or pieces of fruit in it. I know it will be sooooo good!!!:D:D I kind of envy you. My Mom just told me last week that she made some Strawberry Marmelade (in Germany the Strawberry season is a bit later than it is here and she has tons of them in her garden. I'd have her send me some, but that would be some expensive jam/marmelade to ship :D:D:D. Hugs and thanks for sharing, Sabrina
