CoworkerA has the hookup – the peach hookup, that is.  She knows a guy.  Or, more accurately, her step-uncle’s niece who has family on the Western Slope.  Through this convenient connection, she managed to procure this:

That’s 50 pounds of peaches.  Or, if we want to get technical, 50 pounds of peaches minus whatever, CoworkerA and I ate before this weekend.  We spent about 12 hours this past Friday and Saturday dealing with these lovelies.

We made peach butter from this recipe.

We made peach jam from this recipe (minus the brandy because we couldn’t be bothered to go to the liquor store).

We canned peaches using a recipe from Tart and Sweet.

Final count: 20.5 half pint jars of peach butter, 25.5 half pint jars of peach jam, 8 pint jars of peaches, and 6 peaches left over.

Oof!  And yum!

CodeMonkey: Did we wake you up this morning?

Me: Nooo . . .

CodeMonkey: Oh good.  I closed the bedroom door before the police officer got here.

Me: Wha . . .????

Um, yeah.  Apparently CodeMonkey witnessed some vandalism early this morning and had to give a statement to the police.  The things I miss when I’m sleeping.
