Peaches by the Numbers


65 Big Smile peaches ~ peeled, pitted and squished into


13 quarts ~ processed on my stove top using


3 pots ~ of boiling steaminess 

~ raising the temperature in the house by 9 degrees 

~ the scraps from which resulted in


2 happy piggies ~ and


1 christened apron ~ and


1 sweaty, satisfied housewife.

  2. Good for you. I love canning. And you look so nice doing it, too! I look like a total slob. But at least I have my apron!

  5. Love the pictures. Canning your own peaches beat buying store canned peaches any day. Peaches are almost in season up by me. Can't wait to do again this year. Hopefully my stove will look as clean as yours. No matter what I do it gets messy.
