Peach Preserves

Our peach trees are laden with peaches.  Phillip is having to selectively remove some of the peaches to enhance the size of those that remain and hopefully give some relief to the tree branches.  It hurts me to see peaches removed!  I do love fresh peaches with whipping cream!  We have made so many peaches in past years that I could not possibly eat all of them fresh.  I try to share them with friends and family but there still seems to be an excess of peaches.  My bestest friend in the whole wide world, George Ann, gave me her recipe for Peach Preserves.  It is so yummy on homemade biscuits with butter.  My friend, Jan, likes to put it on her pancakes.  I also like to put the Peach Preserves in the recipe for Peach Cobbler To Die For that's on my blog.    I am sure you can find a delicious way to use the Peach Preserves.
