Wahoo!!!! Imagine me dancing around the kitchen cause that is exactly what I am doing. I recruited my 25 year old son to help. He may never speak to me again. Actually he talked about baseball and didn't seem to even notice that he peeled 18 pounds of fruit. Though this was my first experience with canning I have had years of cooking experience. It comes naturally to me to lean over the sink when peeling something juicy. It also is just good common sense. At one point I stopped to look at him and he had peach juice pouring from his elbows. Then I noticed he was standing way too far from the sink and had his hands way up in the air. I explained that the peaches had already been picked. Though the prep time went by much faster than yesterday the cleanup time lengthened considerably. In case anyone else has a leave of their senses and actually decides to try this I have a tip for you. Make extra peach juice and can it too. Then you can use it for peach martinis which you will need the next time you think about repeating this whole process. Ok ok...for all you tea totters....make peach tea.
I had to clean off basement shelves to make room to store all of these peachy little peachlings. In doing so I came across a box I didn't recognize. I opened it and found a large Radko ornament of a witch head that I had no memory of owning. Cool, an unexpected gift to myself! I got so excited and decided to add it to today's post. I took it outside to photograph it and propped it up on a large stone on my table. As I was adjusting my lens I heard one of those noises that you just know can never be good. I have a Michael Jackson witch head. Damn!!
Sorry MJ but your nose was friggin' weird.
