An Apricot of a Weekend

Wall of Apricots

Happy Monday morning friends. I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. I spent a lot of mine putting by a bushel of apricots. There are a lot of apricots in a bushel, I never realized. Actually, this is the first year we’ve found apricots locally so I must admit I got a little overenthusiastic buying a whole bushel. Next year, a half bushel. It’s that time of year, when the canning pot is constantly bubbling, so if you can’t find me here you can always check over on my canning blog.

    And if you find a bushel made way more than your family can use in the coming year, you can always send some of the extra my way.

    oh my goodness. my daughter would be in heaven! apricot jelly is her favorite. this is the first year we haven’t had a huge crop of apricots available to us – usually our neighbors and other local trees fill our needs. maybe next year.
