It was a sunny and warm day, today, with an afternoon high of 89F. I had a relaxed morning; slept in, said my morning prayers, walked around the garden, replied to blog comments, visited a few blogs, etc. Daughter texted that she is feeling much better and headache free, which was good to know.
In the late afternoon/early evening, I made chutney with the last of the peaches. My peach chutney recipe is here. I weighed the fruit after I cut them and removed the stones and bruised bits, etc., and had 3 1/2 lbs. of cut up peaches.
I watched the afternoon news while I cut up the peaches, weighed out the ingredients, and peeled the garlic, etc. Then, I sterilized the pint jars and made the chutney.
I watched/listened to the House Select Committee's hearing on the January 6th Capitol riots while I made the chutney.
I was able to make 6 1/2 pint jars of peach chutney, today. I had to rest for awhile afterwards, but, I am happy to say that my hands didn't cramp from all the stirring! I kept one peach for me to eat fresh, this weekend, but, other than that, all the peaches from this year's crop have been processed. I canned a few jars, made toppings, jam, and chutney! The peach crop has been such a blessing!
Neighbor T's mail had been delivered to my mail box, today, so I went over and slipped the letters under her front door and called to let her know. I wonder if I had any mail and, if so, who received it?!
Later in the evening, I called friend R and chatted with her for a bit.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Daughter is feeling better
- A sunny and warm day
- The first zucchini!
- Peach chutney
- Keeping in touch with family and friends
Today's joyful activity was making peach chutney.
Plans for tomorrow include cleaning the kitchen and gardening with M.
How was your Thursday? Do you make chutney? If so, what types of chutney do you make?
