Fruits of our labor

It's wonderful to have help, and in two days we had four five-gallon buckets of peaches processed. What a yield! I made a batch of cordial--well at least I got the nectar made until procuring the final ingredient, juniper berries. I still had a bottle of aged cordial from 2004 which is wonderfully mellow and the best stuff mixed with honey and lemon for a sore throat or cough. Hoping to still get some apples from the local orchard to put up applesauce. It's comforting heading into winter with the cupboards full.
