I put up 20 pounds of peaches, 10 pounds of plums, and made 10 pints of applesauce. I think I am done preserving for the season. "to put up" - where does that phrase come from and why do we use it in reference to home canning? I should post a photo of the peaches - they look pretty. The peach rum sauce is to die for:
- 6 cups diced peaches
- 2 cups white sugar
- 2 cups brown sugar
- 3/4 cups rum
- Simmer for 20 minutes, ladle into sterilized half-pint jars, process in canner for 10 minutes (for elevations less than 5oom; add 5 min for each increment of +500m).
- Eat on ice cream. Try not to hurt yourself when you swoon.
We are all working our way through a cold that came home from daycare.
