Leonard wanted to help me with a lug of peaches today. We froze 8 quarts and I made some Drunken Peaches. I'm sure glad he helped, it made it a lot easier. For some reason he really likes to help me do this kind of thing. I think he also enjoys the feeling of putting things up and squirreling food away for winter.
This winter when the winds are howling outside and the snow is piling up all around us a fresh peach cobbler will be delightful.
Diane Here's the recipe. I only use 1 quart peaches, 1 quart sugar, and 1 quart (1 fifth) of brandy and call it Drunken Peaches. This recipe was reprinted from The Joy of Cooking.
