as the peaches jellify.

besides my lovely visit to Atlanta's life has been laid back, but quite busy...a typical summer.

we were gifted with overripe peaches on Saturday.
only we had no time to do anything with them until Monday.
by then, they had become even more overripe, and we were only able to use half of them.

I spent almost all of Monday peeling, pitting, and ridding of moldy/blackish stuff. By the time I got to the good stuff, there were only a few slices worth keeping. So it took FOREVER to get enough to actually make some jelly-ish/preserves.

yesterday we canned them.

they look quite delish if I do say so myself.
