I think I "can"

What better to do while moving from one home into another with projects up to our ears?  Add another project, of course!  Completely unrelated, of course...

CANNING!  I've enjoyed canning for about 3 years now, starting with pickles and hot peppers from our very own garden, moving on to pinto beans because we eat CRAZY amounts of beans and I hate cooking them in small batches, and this year moving on to corn and peaches.  Corn because there was a crazy sale and peaches because Kari and Jonathan got a GRIP from their peach tree this year.  Kari was able to help me one evening and it was definitely more fun to do it in a pair, but there were SO MANY it took me 2 nights!  Until midnight! We ended up with 22 quarts of pach halves, 5 quart bags of frozen slices for smoothies, enough pie filling for a 9x13 cobbler (frozen), and 8 pints of peach sauce, like apple sauce but yummier. SIn spite of the time spent, there is something soooooo delicious about home-canned peaches, they are 1,000-million times better than store canned, so it was definitely worth it :)

Now back to the house!
