While I was going through radiation treatments, I was blessed with fresh plums and peaches from neighbor & friend's trees, then a couple of weeks later, my peach tree was full of ripe peaches. So, for about 3 weeks I spent the hot afternoons inside making jelly, jam, freezing peaches, and making cobblers. I am really tired of peaches right now, but I know this winter my hard work will pay off! It is a blessing to have such a bountiful harvest when so much of the world is starving. Next time you see a jar of homemade jam or jelly, think about all the work that went into it, that's why it tastes so good!
