Canning

So we got some fruit off of our new Apricot and peach trees, not a lot and they are not brand new trees, we planted them last year. We have gotten fruit off them since the end of My but this time they were all ripen so we had to pick them all. I did not want them to go to waste so I got out the canning jars.

I made some Apricot Jam and then mixed peach and Apricot and made a jam with the mixture. I also made some peach syrup. It is weird because it is red, I have never made jam that was red or red syrup.

It is either my taste buds acting weird or no one else can taste it. I taste garlic with the jams. They were cooked in different pans and I am the only one who can taste it.

I added a picture of something sweeter then jam on my blog. He just makes Grandpa and Grandma's day when he comes over Uncle Jacob's also. :o)
