It's a matter of ......canning Pears and Peaches.

Last Thursday, Val P and Barbara B presented a class on canning. Even though I have canned for years, I learned something new!

Here is an opportunity for you to learn new things or refresh your memory. Peaches and Pears are becoming very plentiful. If you are fortunate enough to have your own trees or have produce from a neighbor, be thankful for these blessings. I am firm believer that if someone offers you excess produce, it is a blessing directly from the Lord. As such, show your gratitude by graciously receiving and preserving the produce in the manner you choose.

Below are some videos showing the steps of canning these wonderful fruits. Watch them and try it. It is really isn't that hard once you start.

This video is a bit on the "home grown" side, but I find the information to be good and reliable. I particularly enjoyed the sweet sounds of children's voices in the background with Daddy trying hard to placate them and video at the same time. Most of us have been there and done that!

Made the choice to preserve these wonderful fruits for the upcoming winter months. The satisfaction and "peace of mind" are worth the effort needed to preserve these fruits. If you are still unsure, contact a friend or neighbor who will lovingly help you. You really can do this!!!!
