Canning Peaches

Mom and Dad brought us 3 bushels of Georgia peaches.
Don't they look yummy?

We set up our canning operation outside using two propane burners.

Everybody had a job. Mom washed and boiled the peaches to make them easy to peel. Then she brought them outside to the peelers, Dad, Philip, Tricia Ann, and Jacob. My job was to put the peeled peaches into the hot jars and put them into the water bath canner. The aroma was heavenly. Now we have about 60 quarts of peaches to enjoy throughout the winter!
