Yesterday Jaqui brought split pit peaches! That means today we canned peaches!

The recipe was simple:

- quartered, peeled peaches
- apple juice

That's it! I was surprised how easy it could be!

Not sure if this makes it - but I thought it was pretty cool.

This is me making apple sauce having picked the apples from a local farm. The recipe is so simple. Just put all the apples peeled and cored into a big pot and boil with a bit of water. Add lemon juice and cinnamon to taste - I don't use very much. And viola.

The canning method I used was wax.
