Yesterday we went to pick early season peaches lest we miss them while we are away for the next couple weeks. I've never done much canning but I decided it's high time to learn and the success of the blueberry syrup spurred me on. Yesterday I decided to try a batch of peach butter. I bought a large water bath canner and a food mill . I guess I didn't wash the food mill thoroughly enough as some grease was still on it as I was grinding up the peaches so the first batch had to be discarded. The second batch turned out very nicely and smells lovely.
