|Georgia Peaches on my mind|
Today I have the morning to myself, which is very rare because I mostly work during the morning. But I intend to enjoy every bit of this morning until I go to work this evening.
Since I work at a grocery store, I often come across the most awesome deals.
My awesome deal yesterday?
Fresh Georgia Peaches!!!
Now being as I myself am a born and raised in Georgia, Georgia Peach, it safe to say that I absolutely looooooovvveee PEACHES!!!! I love their softness, their sweetness and I especially love to cook with them!
Last year I was determined to teach myself how to make Homemade Peach Cobbler, but since it was a cobbler for Thanksgiving all the lovely peaches were out of season. I would never use canned peaches, only fresh or frozen,but OMG how expensive the frozen are!! $4.99 a bag at my grocery store, even with my employee discount, I was still looking at spending $3.78 a bag.
The bargain shopper inside of me could only agree that we had no choice, we needed them, so we paid for them. The cobbler was great but after spending well over $10 for the peaches alone PLUS the other ingredients for a grand total of $25, I decided that as soon as this beautiful fruit was back in season I was going to freeze my own!!!
After combing the internet for an easy way to freeze them I came across what I was looking for at PickYourOwn.org. The steps look so simple, so here's hoping that I'm correct and they are. I have to pick up a few more items and maybe some more peaches but I'll share my adventure as soon as I'm done. Be blessed everyone!
