Hello, August

Hello, 95-degree days with 90% humidity.

Hello, hours spent standing over a hot stove dunking peaches to skin them.

Hello, ice cold water bath.

Hello, paring knife.

Hello, lemon juice and sugar.

Hello, chopping and chopping and chopping.

Hello, giant pot that simmers and simmers.

Hello, hot boiling jars.

Hello, heavy canner. Very heavy canner.

Oh, how I missed you:

Think warm, August is good, even June would be great at this point. Those preserves look yummy.
