    I put this in the canning thread, but on further review decided it needs it own thread due to the short time frame for the deal. From Andy Lynd’s newsletter today:

    Juicy tree-ripened peaches are now on sale at the market at the greatly reduced price of five pecks for $50! Now through the close of business Thursday, 8/2/12, buy five or more pecks (a peck of peaches weighs approximately twelve pounds) of yellow freestone peaches and pay just $10 each peck. White Lady and donut peaches excluded from the sale price. Tell your friends and neighbors, break out the canning supplies, and enjoy the fruits of our labors! Peaches are regularly priced at $16 per peck and $9 per half peck. Open daily 9 – 6 and located at the intersection of Morse Rd. and S.R. 310

    Very nice! My wife and I picked a bushel of peaches a couple of weeks ago and canned some, made salsa, and jam.

    Joev, when we picked two heaping, heaping bushels of peaches it was about 210 peaches. There are four pecks to bushel.

    Thanks! So 5 pecks = all the peaches you can dream of :)

    So you’re saying that they are selling “a bushel and a peck” for $50. Does that come with a hug too?

    Two gallons of cut peaches frozen, innumerable eaten by my family and I, a peach tart made for dessert last night and you can only barely tell we have made a dent in the mountain of peaches. They may have had babies overnight.

    Mercurious, yes.

    Derm, that is fantastic. We are getting more peaches tonight to slice up and can. How easy were they to peel?

    Do you know the trick of putting the peaches in boiling water for 30 seconds to make the skins easy to slip off? Saves a whole bunch of time.
