Canning...

The kids love it when Mark gets home from work. He gets down on their level and plays with them...and they just eat it up! He's such a good daddy! I forgot to mention that while I was up in Utah, Mark was a SUPER DADDY!! Planting shrubs and trees in the yard, making a casserole for Sunday dinner, taking the kids shopping for some new church shoes and Bryanna's dance shoes were just some of the things he did. When I walked in the door from our trip, the house was SPOTLESS!! He is amazing!

Here is the MOUND of peaches that I started with...

I had to boil ALL the peaches and tomatoes to get their skins off easier.

This was an ALL day procedure...

And my beautiful products: Peach Jam and Canned Tomatoes!! I'm so proud...this was my first canning experience ALL by myself!! I can't wait to reap all the hard work it took to make those pretty cans! Its fun to give something hand made from the heart too.

Yum! I think Julie and I will get together and can some peaches and make peach jam! We get people up here all of the time selling the peaches from Brigham City for about $15 per box (big box). I already went through 1 whole box making peach cobbler and just eating the fresh ones. I am looking forward to going and diggin up some fresh potatoes... should be this week! Yippy!
