Just kidding! ~ I wish I knew how to do it the old way! I can remember my Grandma making peach preserves!
I am all about the EASY way to do it!
lol...the beach is a half hour drive and it's way too crowded. I like Crystal Cove beach, it's quiet, but it's a bit of a hike to the water. Shopping, though, DEFINITELY!
The old way is actually very easy, the directions come in the pectin you can buy in the grocery store. Stew up your fruit, put it in the jars that have the ring tops and boil the jars until all the lids go down from the vacuum seal. Then you're set!
