just peachy...

She's learning to ...

carry on family tradition.

This has been a long-time family favorite.

I think this is the most-used page from

my vintage (wedding present!) Betty Crocker cookbook.

It's why we can peaches...

Another family tradition...girl time!

We'll be doing that again soon.

When the Elbertas are ripe-my favorite.


Have a peachy day,

Oh, does seeing all those canning jars bring back beautiful memories to me. My dear MIL used to can peaches and they tasted so good. Did you ever put up 14 day pickles? If you want the recipe, I'd be willing to share it. It was hers and she was a wonderful cook! I learned so much from her.

All right...this is the second POST I've read today showing home canning. I think God's trying to tell me something. I've wanted to do this for years...I sooo want to learn.

Blessings...what a joy to see!

Love, Rebecca

My grandmother used to make the best homemade peach ice cream from the peaches she "put up". By the by the property that Matildas Mouse is on, was once owned by the original Betty Crocker! She used to do her radio remotes from the kitchen! Probably developed that thar receipe for puttin up peaches and cobblers in that kitchen!

This post is an exceptional one! One can almost feel the downhome goodness of the pictures and the words. Canning peaches reminds me of my grandma and my mother, and the hours of time we spent together in the kitchen. It also makes me wonder why I did not carry on with the tradition.
