Preserving the harvest is an age-old custom, the skills passed down generation to generation, to ensure food security in times of scarcity and bountiful nutrition even in the depths of winter.
We all know the transcendent experience of biting into a perfectly ripe, sun-warmed peach. But peach season is fleeting (I think that’s what makes it so amazing when it’s here!) so I preserve that summer bounty to enjoy all year long by water bath canning peaches in a simple syrup.
If you’re new to canning and preserving, peaches are the perfect place to begin. They are delicious, easy to work with, and with a little training and mentorship, you can learn all you need to feel confident in preserving beautiful, delicious, shelf-stable peaches your family will enjoy for months to come.
This is the perfect class for the beginner canner.
Waterbath canning is the safe and simple process of preserving peak-season flavors and nutrients and allows you to stock your pantry with homegrown, shelf-stable foods and made-from-scratch goodness.
