Just Peachy

On our way home last week,
we picked up four huge boxes of Georgia peaches.
They were just too good to pass up -
and way too pretty not to photograph...
Especially in Grandma's antique pottery bowl,
cracks, chips, and all.

So I enjoyed the beauty while it lasted,
and then got serious.

After a little blanching,
a little peeling,
and so on...

Out they came;
warm, golden - tucked away for a far distant Winter.

Just three-and-a-half boxes to go...

And so the canning season begins.

Well, being from Georgia I am a little biased. We do have the *best* peaches. ;D
