Heavens Preserve Us

Lynn and I spent an hour last night blanching peaches, peeling them, depitting them, cutting them, and putting them on trays for the freezer. With the high price of food (especially organic) and the challenge of feeding two growing boys, we're taking this small and first measure towards trying to be more sensible about what's available in the winter and what's available for bulk. Lynn bought a flat of certified organic peaches from the local farmer's market, and our investment was a few BTUs of natural gas, a little boiling water, and some time, to wind up with pounds of frozen fruit.Preserving and canning is much much more difficult, but they might be in our future.
What a peach!
