A quick post today because it is finally peach canning day. Let me tell you something. Always ALWAYS blanch things to remove skins. I don't know why I have been stubborn in the past and thought I could peel just as fast if I didn't blanch but i was WRONG! When I looked at the piles of peaches I had to peel this morning I threw myself on the floor and cried. When I picked myself up I decided to try blanching. Now I am standing at my sink peeling and whistling while I work! Blanching rules!!! I ran to a flea this morning and got some good deals. Some really good deals. I found this brand new enameled cookbook stand for 3.99.
And it works.
This very heavy old pedestal will be a great plant stand and matched my new porch furniture perfectly. 8.00!
I have collected aluminum ware for years and snagged this divided piece for 6.00. It doesn't have a scratch on it. I use aluminum ware when I entertain outside.
It has a cut tulip knob on top that matches the tulip pattern on the lid.
I watch the weather like no ones business. I was thrilled to find this brand new in the box barometer made in Germany with the directions for 3.99. I looked it up when I got home and found out that it sells for 148.00! Cools beans!!!
Back to the peaches.....can you hear me whistling?
