You guessed it! Time for peaches.
That's not all we've been doing though.
Blackberries (though these may have actually
been Dewberries-not much difference to speak of).
These were the big ones I used for jam.
These were smaller and we froze them for
use later in muffins, or to mix with applesauce.
They were very sweet so 1 box disappeared immediately.
I'm not even sure they were washed. Sometimes you
just have to pray for their health.
We ended up with a gallon each of the blackberries and the large blueberries and 1 & 1/2 gallons of the small blueberries.
I made a mixed berry jam using the strawberries we had picked and frozen in the spring along with the blueberries and the blackberries. I don't really care for raspberries so I like this particular combination much better for mixed berry jam. I let Grandma taste the sample batch I made and she declared it was the best she had ever tasted; even surpassing her favorite jelly which her Grandmother used to make. A statement like that sure does make you feel good.
I've got to get some more peaches - we've only done 1 & 1/2 bushels so far (welllll, we bought 1&1/2 bushels, nowhere near that many made it all the way to the canner), and I have some nectarines waiting to be turned into Salvation Jam, which is a combination of nectarine, pineapple juice, and pineapple sage. I can't wait to try it.
Right now I've got a whole buch of basil drying out. It smells sooooo good.
