Such is the way of the world when you have too much of a good thing...all at once, that is. It's either feast or famine for the self reliant person unless you have a plan. When you have tons of fruit ripening quicker than you can eat them, you better do something to keep them or you lose them.
I didn't want to do it. Fresh fruit right off the tree is such a thrill! Juicy, yummy and oh-so-perfect, but preserving them is better than nothing. And so I peeled my little Apriums packed them into quart jars, made a very light sugar syrup and...
poured it into the jars. I could have put them in a boiling water bath to preserve them for a more lasting storage, but I figured I would eat them as is in just a few days time.
Look at those pretties! It's rather amazing how many apriums you can pack into three 1-quart jars.
Now if I only had tomatoes to preserve! Perhaps I should get some from Julie at Wooly Acres!
