How to Can Peaches

Canning 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 yummy peaches in water, no syrup. I like canning our own peaches. Being diabetic I can control how much sugar there is in it.
