Yum! My parents and I went to a pick-your-own orchard today and bought peaches. Delicious peaches for $.90 a pound. Not cheap, but worth it! I also bought a jar of Damson plum preserves and a couple of pounds of fresh butter beans. I cooked up the butter beans with a ham bone and we had them for supper tonight – along with biscuits and the plum preserves. Mom made a pie and brought it over for dessert. She took the remains back home with her, but left me a slice for breakfast tomorrow morning.
Tomorrow I’m going to make a pie, myself, for the freezer. And a peach cobbler, also for the freezer. Then I’ll keep the rest of the peaches for eating – once they start to turn, I’ll cut them up and put them in bags and freeze them. I prefer frozen peaches to canned.
Peaches are my favorite fruit.
