Yay! I has peachy goodness all cooked up! :D

So, it took over 24 hours for the peach butter to cook. But I ended up with two pints exactly! Or at least fitting into two half-pint and one pint jar. And then tonight (Thursday night, since it's past midnight for me) I did three batches of jam with the rest of the peaches. One 'plain' (well, a hit of ground ginger and freshly grated nutmeg is in there), one with a single habanero finely diced into it, and one with the very scant amount of blackberries I got from a friend's bush, plus more spices.

And so you can see what each actually looks like...

The three small jars are the jams. From left to right, they're plain, habanero, and blackberry. The medium-sized jar is of the peach butter. The large jar is the leftover jam I didn't have any more properly-sized jars to dedicate to, so I just threw it all in one jar to save. It's mostly the habanero and blackberry. I used 13 4oz jars, 6 half-pint, and 4 pint jars in total. Discounting the empty space in the one pint jar, that's roughly 10 pints of peach yumminess to be eaten. :D At least one of the butters and one of the plain jams will go to the neighbors who kindly provided the peaches. And the 4oz jars are a lovely size for gifts... But that's for later. I have two open jars of plum jam in my fridge I need to eat first. (One is from last year, and then one is a jar that didn't get filled commpletely when I made plum jam last week.) And I still have an unopened pint of blueberry jam and an unopened half-pint of plum jam I made last year... I need to get off my butt and get a loaf of bread in my bread machine so I can have plenty of PB&J sandwiches. LOL
