Sweet Yummy Peaches!

My mom and I found these peaches at Costco. They make their appearance in July and are gone by the end of August. We bought eight 5 pound boxes (40 pounds). This made 18-quart jars of peaches in water, no syrup. I like canning peaches. Being diabetic I can control how much sugar there is in it.

Let start canning peaches
