Peach chipotle jam tonight and there's some currant vinegar stewing on the counter(red currant w/white wine vinegar and black current w/ white balsamic).

It's been a good fruit year but vegies are late in my garden...beans are just blooming and we've had a few ittybitty zucchinis and two cherry tomatoes. I judged at a county fair today. They have a longer/earlier growing season than my county and hardly any vegetable products were entered that weren't done last fall.

Wow, Bookbrat. You will have to share your peach jam recipe! Your vegetables are a lot later than mine. My beans and cukes are about done, and I've been roasting and freezing my cherry tomatoes like crazy, still have heaps on the counter and more coming on.

Hey Dawgluver
Did you know that you can make Peach Butter
With the peach peelings it is so yummy. If anyone
wants the directions let me know.

DH found Bing cherries for $.99/lb, so I'm pitting them and plan to make cherry jam. The cherries are large, so my pitting machine manages to miss the pits about every third cherry. I've got nice purple fingernails from squeezing them to make sure they're pitted. Looks like I hit all my nails with a hammer. Hope the stains come out.

I'm making pesto and preparing pureed basil with water for the freezer. Yum!

You missed the You Tube on how to make your cherry pitter? Anyone remember which thread it was shown? All you need is a paper clip.

Usually the machine works just fine, but these were really big cherries! I put DH to work on it, now we have matching purple nails. Which is fine, I like purple.
