My First Attempt at Canning Peaches


Posted by Jennifer | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 16-09-2009

Megan’s neighbor inspired me to try to can some peaches. Last weekend we went and bought a 20lb box of Elberta Peaches. Today I decided I better can them before either Finley ate them all or they went bad. So I washed my jars, sterilized everything, peeled the peaches, made the syrup and packed them in and then boiled the jars. I learned a few things along the way. 1. Don’t start peeling your peaches too early – they get brown. 2. Pack the jars full so that when things shift you don’t have gaps – I was afraid of squishing the fruit. 3. Don’t splash yourself with hot boiling water – it hurts.

Here are pictures of my canning experience. I will definitely do it again. Having the peaches will be so worth it this winter. I might try one more batch of peaches and attempt some pickles.
