For the James family, canning peaches was one way to keep that taste of summer all year round. Add a little brandy to the syrup before canning them, and you have an extra-special treat; spooned over ice cream, they were James' favorite dessert.
My husband and I disagree on many food-related things. I love tomatoes and mushrooms, and he abhors them. The humble peach is a different story, one we both agree on. We share a mutual love of peaches, and our children, thankfully, have followed suit.
