Now showing...when peaches fly!

not so long ago...

Where I got all these yummy peaches.
My friend, Rachel, makes some yummy, instant, freezer jam.
So, I thought I'd give it a shot.
{Lots o' photos coming up}

First, I gathered everything I needed
{Cuz' I roll like that}
{note to self...next time save the Pectin pack with directions so I can give the amounts}
Second, I peeled the peaches...

{This is before I found out how to boil the peaches and have the skins slide right off}

And, I put them into this...

But then, I decided that I didn't want chunky jam. 
So out came the food processor...

Not, before I realized as Peaches went flying...
that I had the lid on wrong,
which left a large gap,
which flung peaches,
e.v.e.r.y. w.h.e.r.e.

I was shocked {but only for a second}...
but then rolling with laughter.
I literally was cleaning peaches off the cupboard, dishwasher, and floor!

Once the laughter died down...
I added the sugar, lemon juice, and pectin mixture to the fruit as the Pectin package said.

I allowed it to sit for the amount of time as said on "package."
{Really, truly, next time I will have it more together.}

I poured the mixture into these nifty, plastic, freezer cups.

{Please excuse the *gasp* blinds in the background.}

How did it turn out you may wonder?

it's super sweet,
a little too runny, 
but set up perfectly in the freezer.

What did I learn from this new adventure?

1. It's not a good idea to start a project like this at 11:30 p.m. {yep, no joke}
2. Pictures, Pictures, Pictures {I did not take enough}
3. Save the package {a.k.a. directions}
4. Never give up...even when peaches fly!
You'll still get a really good product and learn something or somethings to boot!

I've got another peach recipe for you soon...
Instant peach pie filling.
Don't worry...
I've got L.O.T.S of pictures
all the directions.
Love, Cole
