I spent the last two days making A LOT of peach jam. Like … over 8 gallons of it.
It’s fun and delicious, but boy oh boy it sure wears a person out.
The kids were awesome helpers, and they all pitched in with peeling and pitting the peaches, even after it got tedious, and we treated ourselves with ice cream as our reward.
However, once it was time to start boiling water for canning and cooking the jam, I kicked all the kids out of the kitchen. I worry about accidents, and we had A LOT of peach jam to process. Like … over 8 gallons of it.
Anyway, I’m exhausted right now.
But we won’t have to buy jam for a long, long time.
