Canning updates

So, wanted to make some peach pie filling.
I started with peaches. I peeled and sliced them

I then placed them in a pot, and added all the other ingredients.

I cooked this until it was thick, then I placed it in jars. I then water bathed it; and set the jars on the counter to cool.

It smelled so good!

My garden has been bountiful, I have been thankful
Today I picked, 10 bell peppers, 3 zucchini, 6 cucumbers and approximately 2 cups of strawberries. I dont remember my strawberries every producing as much fruit as I have gotten this year. This has been a blessing, especially since Jason is away in Idaho, and we are trying to save as much money as we can.

This picture is from a month ago, but it is just an example of what it has been producing.
I have canned tomatoes, tomatoe sauce, peaches, pear sauce, pear butter, and frozen nectarine.

Yesterday I began to make fruit leather.

Once it is done curing, I will post the results!
Happy Fall everyone!
