Canned Texas peaches.



I stopped at a road-side farmstand and picked up a bunch of Texas peaches. Peaches don't last long, so I canned most for over the winter.

Nothing like a warm peach cobbler in cooler weather!

I wish technology would allow us to share foods across different countries instantly. Those things look pretty cool

You have fresh local peaches now? In mid-July? We don't get them around here until late August.

Yes, first crop. Pat, where's "here"?

[Edit: never mind! It's in your profile!]

Light syrup. The only preservatives are heat and vacuum.

That'll keep these preserved for about a year (as if they'd lay around that long!)

General Washington DC area. I just love proper ripe local peaches. They do not travel, and they don't last. Almost as fragile as raspberries.

Indeed, I have one left of those I kept fresh, and it's already looking rather beat. It'll still be just as tasty when I eat it tonight.

Buying local produce gives one a good sense as to why super-market produce, that has been developed to survive a long time under rough conditions, is so crappy.

Modern commercial tomatoes are bred to be easy to pick by machines, not to have any taste. So most don't have *any* taste.

When I was a kid, my dad had a fairly large garden where he grew tomatoes and sweet corn. Corn starts changing its taste in the first minutes after its picked. He would put on the pot of water to boil, got out and pick some ears, and shuck them as he walked back to the house. Into the boiling water and onto the dinner plates and on the table in well under five minutes. I have a real hard time eating corn on the cob any other way.

I understand completely. I was an avid gardener in my youth as well (in New England).

Unfortunately, the central Texas climate isn't conducive to backyard gardening except for the few things that thrive in the heat. I do grow my own chiles (for making hot red chile jam and green chile jelly), a handful of herbs (rosemary, basil, thyme, chives), and have a bunch of loquat trees (for fantastic jelly!).

I'd do Farmer's Markets more often, but they're a morning affair, and come week-ends, I'm not much of a morning person.
