I started at 8 this morning, and ended at 3 this afternoon. 7 straight hours of jam making! I'm pretty tired just now... jam making is not hard, but it is intense, and once you start you have to keep going until you're done.
There are 15 pint jars, 16 half-pint jars, and 6 quarter-pint jars of jam. It took 7 batches to get these- 28 cups of chopped peaches, 38.5 cups of sugar, 7 lemons and 7 boxes of pectin! I made a total of 376 ounces of peach jam- that's just short of 3 gallons!
Nearly all the jars have sealed- there are two that don't look like they are going to, so we'll have to eat them first, and quickly! Oh, darn... :) Peach jam is so yummy on peanut butter sandwiches, pancakes and ice cream!
