I been canning me behind off, 20 quarts organic apricots in light honey syrup and 45 pints organic honey apricot butter. Props to my son for having pity on his mom and peeling thousands for me.
 We like the butter more then the apricot halves thats why we made so much. We use the butters, for apricot chicken, fillings in cakes, bbq sauce, smoothies, turnovers and gifts. I still have half a tree to go mercy.

Canning is hard work. I missed peaches this year at my mom's but I will be in on the apples. We do a lot of apple sauce and apple butter. It makes great gifts although this time a year when we are running low there is some generally regret that we were so generous with our friends last holiday. Oh and figs... I can't wait for the figs to come in. mmm

Um...YUM!  You know, if for some reason you think you might have just too much I am sure some of us Crafsters would be willing to help you out.... Grin  No seriously, kudos to you and your son, I never have that much patience in the kitchen.

You could always sell some of those yummy fresh tree ripened apricots at the farmer's market so you don't have to can them all.  I wish I lived where apricots grew. . . those hard rocks in the supermarket with an apricot skin and pit, just don't ever taste like the ones off our tree when I was a kid.

Good job on the canning. It's a bunch of work and my Gramma didn't peel hers.  Although I remember how much time peeling peaches and tomatoes took, although she blanched them first.  Peeling makes even more time in the kitchen.

I adore fresh figs, I just ordered 2 trees I wasn't sure how well they did in az, the nursery says they do great I cant wait. I have 4 peach trees but they aren't ripe for another month, at least I hope. It is hard work but so worth it.

I have thought of that esp. when my peaches come in I have so many. Hmmm my Granny always peeled hers I may try not peeling them cause thats the part that really sucks even with the blanching and slipping the peel off it is still hot work.

They look great! Care to share any of those recipes (when you're not up to your eyebrows in apricots)?  Smiley

We planted a tart cherry tree four years ago.  It was just this year that the cherries started getting big enough to pick.  By the time the cherries were ready, I got *6* cherries off the tree due to birds.   Roll Eyes   Definitely going to have to try something other than netting next year (maybe aluminum pie plates).
