Peaches, Peaches, Peaches
I love to buy fruit and veg from the farmer’s market if I can, but sometimes such a good deal comes along at the grocery store, I just can’t pass it up. This week at one of our local grocery stores, they had organic peaches for $1 a pound. I just couldn’t beat that price anywhere else, so my hubby and eldest son went and snagged 25 pounds. I had big plans for putting them up for the winter. Yesterday morning I got a bunch of peach jam made and the afternoon and evening were spent blanching, peeling, slicing and freezing peaches. I absolutely love a good bargain especially when it comes to organic fruit and veg. Now that summer is winding down, it’s nice to see the pantry and freezer being filled with yummy things for the winter. I’m hoping I can get a good deal on corn this coming weekend at the farmer’s market. Then I’ll put my kids to work, good thing they like shucking corn.
