While I was in town I also went and picked a bunch of wild plums. These are small plums but very sweet. I decided to use them for jelly since they wouldn't make good jam.
I add cinnamon sticks and piece of nutmeg to the syrup to add spice flavor to them. All in all I canned 21 quarts and 7 pints of peaches and then 17 pints of plum jelly in one very long day. I only stopped because a jar broke in my hand and cut the heck out of my finger. Blood and peaches shouldn't go together so I took the hint and ended the day.
What a wonderful abundant land we live in. We are so lucky to have access to good inexpensive food.
We are truly blessed!
