    Rachel, thanks for the peach pit recipe. I had never heard of it before you mentioned it and now can’t wait for peach season to roll around again so I can try it out. I am awed by all you have accomplished…you rock! xx

    Thank you for sharing the recipe for using the peach pits, Rachel! I never would have thought of using all the bits!

    Your preserves look wonderful!

    I just froze peach/strawberry compote for the first time a few days ago.
    Peach pit Jelly? Wow. Who knew?

    We are on the peach kick too! I really like freezing the slices for smoothies and just for thawing and eating. Glad to know there are other crazy canners out there! We also did peach jam and peaches in light syrup. Thanks for sharing the peach pits jelly. I will be sure to try.

    I just finishing a batch of crabapple jelly, in which I used powdered pectin. That might make setting of the peach jelly easier? I am getting ready to process 50lbs of tomatoes into spaghetti sauce and salsa in just a few minutes.

    The Simply in Season cookbook is a great resource for seasonal eating. Not sure if you have it, but it is a staple in our house(has a great index in the back and is sorted by season).

    So far this year: pickles, cherries, plums, strawberry jam, strawberry/rhubarb jam, peach jam,crabapple jelly, peaches, relish and soon sauce, salsa, pear jam and pepper jelly. I think our floors might look simialar 😉 Happy canning wishes from the east coast!

    Looks delicious. Trade you the green pepper jelly recipe for the vanilla poached peaches and peach salsa recipes…
