Cooking Ideas

Emmett this week was remembering the grape juice his mom used to make from Concord grapes when he was growing up. The method is simple, even if you’re not an experienced canner. This blog post comes pretty close to the process he remembers. He said his father liked to eat the grapes left in the jars once the juice had been extracted. 

This is a great week to put away some sliced peaches for colder weather. Here is a no-peel method that calls for soaking the peaches in a lemon juice mixture to slow down browning. If you prefer a peeled peach, here’s another method that includes slipping the skins off after a hot water bath. 

You could also make a freezer peach pie and have instant deliciousness any time of year.
