Does anyone else know that song, Peaches by Presidents of USA? I can’t I say I know any of the other words besides, “millions of peaches, peaches for me” but I kept singing it the whole time I was picking and jamming these peaches.
It’s the end of peach season here in New England. I think I got the last of the crop at Brooksby Farm in Peabody, Mass over Labor Day weekend? They are super easy to pick off trees just like apples. Photos of the field above and below. I brought them home, sliced them up, soaked them in sugar for about fours hours, and then cooked them down with some lemon. Viola jam! That’s it! I sampled the jam with a little ice cream and it was delicious. Have you been canning too? I would love to hear your stories.
