We’ll have perfectly ripe western slope freestone peaches on hand and you’ll learn how to save that deliciousness as canned peaches in a light syrup or juice. We’ll prepare peeled peach halves and then water bath can them to enjoy later in the year when fresh Colorado peaches are just a memory. We’ll also roast and taste peach halves, and discuss how to preserve those as well. You’ll take home a few pints of peaches, recipes and lots of ideas of how to enjoy the flavor of Colorado’s premier fruit throughout the year.
