If there is anything more beautiful than a ripe peach, I'm not sure what it would be.
I can a cling type peach called "All Gold". It is similar to "Baby Gold" but ripens earlier. The disadvantage of cling peaches is the difficulty in removing the pit but we love the quality when canning.
The drought may have affected the size a little, but the flavor, if anything, is better then usual.
If you live local and are looking for cling type peaches, these are the best price and quality I've found. They are just a small orchard with great service - and they are my relatives - so I recommend them heartily!
Since having children, I started dicing all my peaches before canning. It makes it easier to serve since I would be cutting them up for the children anyway.
Sisters are such a blessing - especially when they are sixteen, have their driver's license, and only live 30 minutes away! AND are skilled at homemaking skills!
And younger sisters who play with the children are wonderful, too!
The dishes are washed up and the counter is full of peaches!
One of the jars broke in the canner, three jars didn't seal, and one jar I forgot to fill with water but... still a good day!
