JAPANESE BEETLES: What you can do to be prepared, how you can spot their work and when and how to act
When you order a 25lb case of peaches, canning is the perfect option to keep your peaches longer. And who doesn’t like to savor peaches all year long? Peaches are an easy fruit to can because of their high acidity.
As with canning any fruit, start with ripe, unblemished fruit that’s washed well. If you haven’t already, be sure to pre-order your peaches for pick-up.
Test Kitchen Tip: Remember to treat peaches with ascorbic acid color keeper and drain once your peaches are prepped.
Choose the sugar level you want and place the following amounts in a large saucepan. Heat until sugar is dissolved. Skim off foam, if necessary, for a clearer syrup.
This pack method is called raw-pack and is fast and easy and helps preserve the texture of delicate fruits like peaches.
Process filled peaches in a boiling-water canner for 25 minutes for pints and 30 minutes for quart jars. Start timing when water returns to boiling.
Remove jars from canner; cool on wire racks. Store for up to a year.
