I've been working this week on cherries and peaches, since they're so inexpensive and in season right now. I dried about 7 lbs of sweet cherries, which almost filled this two quart jar.
We also picked up a little more than a bushel of peaches. These I dehydrated, froze and canned. We dried slices, puree (for roll ups), and shreds. The shreds because my blender broke and I finished my dehydrator load with the salad shooter. I froze a gallon bag of peach quarters for throwing in smoothies, and canned five and a half quarts of slices in ultra light syrup.
I think I'll pick up some more cherries this weekend since they're still on sale. I'd like to can some as pie filling and brandied cherries.
