Box of Peaches. . .what to do.

We we picked peaches on Saturday and they are starting to get ripe. What to do. . .instead of letting half of them rot like usual I decided to get a little creative. I love good jelly's and jam. You know the stuff from the farmer's markets that don't have all the fake weird stuff in it. . .well I decided if the farmer's could do it, I should be able to do it too. I researched a bit online, bought some jars and a grabber thingy for the jars and did my thing. So far I have made four jars of Jam. From the recipe, I think I'm suppose to let the jars sit for 24 hours before I use them. I'm so tempted to open on to see what it turned out like. I really have no idea. . .it might just be awful. I did manage to get all four jars to seal tight so now according to my recipe they should be good for up to a year. If it tastes good this might just be amazing and something I'll have to keep doing. . .man I'm so domestic. Maybe I should buy a farm. . .
