Canning Peaches

SO back in September 2008 I made a Honey Do List with a list of crafts I'd like to learn. Well i am proud to say today I knocked another one off my list! CANNING !!!
boiling to get the skins off
It was actually not as hard as I thought it would be. I was having nightmares of the lids not sealing and having a horrible death caused by botulism....
Chopped peaches for preserves
But it wasn't so! Each "PING" of the lids sealing made us all so excited. It was pretty funny. Throughout the day we would cheer after each " Ping"... The sign of success !
They look so pretty
We made Peach Jam, Canned peaches and Peach Salsa from Putting Up MMMMM MMMM I think that was everyones favorite!

What do you enjoy canning? I cant wait to make blackberry Strawberry jam!! Might have to take a little road trip up to the west coast and pick wild berries!!!
