Bottled Sunshine

I don't drive.  When my son Daniel was very little and just started to eat"big people" food, our little green grocer closed down.  What could I do?  Well my husband did most of the food shopping he never really and still doesn't have the hang of buying "fresh". So when the seasons arrived I started to do some preserves, keeping in mind the amounts of sugar I was omitting from my young child's diet.  He's now a man, and still loves his "fresh" produce.  I don't do as much as I use to, but knowing that he probably isn't eating enough "fresh" I like to capture a little sunshine for him.  So today's adventure was peaches. Batch one.
It's a small batch, but it will keep the scurvy away.
