Peachy keen - canning Niagara peaches

One of my favourite fruits is peaches.  I can't bring myself to purchase peaches from the grocery store that have done more traveling than me in the last year - so I wait in anticipation for the end of summer for locally grown peaches. 

To make these perfect peaches last as long as they can,  my parents heat up their kitchen, peel, slice and can them so we can savour them all winter long.   

My four year old nephew who was unfortunately sick the entire March Break of this year was convinced he was going to get better because he was eating grandma's canned peaches.    

I think he's on to something!
