This is the yummy jam I made out of the free peaches, along with a handful of supermarket raspberries. I'll have to keep it in the fridge and use it up fairly quickly, since I didn't have any official canning jars on hand. Somehow, I don't think that will be a problem, though there is quite a lot of it. One thing to note: I didn't bother to peel the peaches, and it didn't seem to be an issue. Nothing at all unpleasant about the texture or the taste. The skins just sort of dissolved, I guess, in the cooking. Another thing: most of the peaches were a bit underripe, but apparently that is a GOOD thing when it comes to jam-making qualities.

Looks delicious. My appetite has been down lately. But reading about your food adventures perks it up.

A good cook would probably use the skins. Lots of flavor and nutrients to be had.

I don't know that because I am a good cook but recently watched a cooking show with a famous chef from New Jersey who basically said the same thing.
