Peaches and Apricots

Today I processed the peaches and apricots that we bought in Penticton, BC, on Saturday.

I'm not too pleased with how the apricots turned out, though.  By the time I was able to get to them they were overripe.  I tried to can them but they look very mushy in the jars.  The apricot syrup looks and tastes great, though.

The peaches were very close to being overripe but I caught them in time, thankfully.  They canned nicely.

Altogether, today I processed:
  • 4 1-litre jars of apricots
  • 12 1-litre jars of peaches
  • 4 1-litre jars of apricot syrup
  • 4 500-ml jars of apricot syrup
