Thanks for asking, friend.

I have to wait until Tuesday or Wednesday to take some to the Mission store.

I have a peach dump cake in the slow cooker - smells yummy! The other peaches I am going to puree and make peach butter (thank you for the idea, made! ) or freeze. Going to call it a night on here.

MERRY dreams!!!

wow, really? Here it is snapped up as quick as it comes in. A lot of the soup kitchens take it too for preparing of the hot meals. I know the canned is easier because of lack of processing needed, but I would think those in need would welcome fresh food.
