Today in our grocery flyers the one thing that I have been looking out for these past few days.

PEACHES have arrived.

Last year I missed it so did not can any but this year I am going to make up for it so this morning I have off to my supermarket to get my first 29 pound case.

There are peaches advertised for my other supermarket but how does one compare prices?  20 pound case for $19.99 or 3 litre clamshell for $3.97.  One has to be a mathematician.

I am going for 20 pounds as that is within walking distance for me.  The second means a bus ride and an hours time.

The store opens at eight a.m. so I do hope that the peaches are on the shelf. I will phone first to make sure.  I do not want to walk all the way there with my trolley and have to come back empty handed.

Sounds great, Kelejan!   A local grocery store is advertising Michigan Peaches at 67¢ a pound - about the best we have seen for several years. Have to get some...  Shocked

Just a question on canning peaches. I tried it about 30 years ago and they were mushy. Do you use firm, barely ripe peaches. Water bath or pressure canner?

I waterbath them. And I find that the peach variety has quite a bit to do with mushiness. I try to get freestone so I don't squish them as much...

I use a Power Pressure Cooker XL Pro.  Just a fancy tital.  It takes four 1 litre jars,
Freestone peaches; I assume clingstone are as much trouble to deal as plums.
