[Editor's Note: It's National Cheesecake Day, and this no-bake option is perfect if you want to celebrate without turning on the oven! --Genie]
Guess what I did today for the first time. I bottled 17 quarts of peaches! I am so proud of myself. The peaches were from a patient at work. He brought in 2 big boxes full. Everyone took what they wanted and when nobody wanted anymore....I took the rest. I picked up a canner at a yard sale this summer with all the accessories for $5. So now I had no excuses. I woke up on this Labor Day and labored!
So far so good. It looks like they all sealed and they look great. I saved a few peaches to make this yummy cheesecake. It tastes like good old peaches and cream. Simply delicious.
