I pitted and chopped about 100 apricots, which seemed like about triple that cause I had to look each one over and trim off the bird bites and patio bash bruises. But I persevered cause I can't stand the thought of all that fruit going to waste. Too bad my nectarine tree isn't near as prolific cause I'd just eat them all. And we're not done with apricots yet cause the tree is still about half full. Been taking them to work and giving bags away to the neighbors. Luckily they're more cheerfully received than excess zucchini LOL.
Canning is a lot of work. Imagine back in the day when you canned every bit of food your family ate during the winter. gack
|Lots of jam! Actually it didn't set real well so it's more like apricot sauce.|
|Still tons of apricots still to come.|
