Peach Salsa

I just love having a large batch of fresh, colorful vegetables to work with. Fortunately, peaches are in and the vegetable gardens are producing well, so this morning I made and canned a batch of peach salsa.

Fruit salsa is so popular in my house that this is the second batch that I have made in the last week (all will be gone by next spring).  I hope you enjoy the recipe as much as we do.
