Last of the peach jam

Starting at 6 this morning, I worked up the last of the peaches this year.  The result is 4.75 more pints of peach jam.  I have a part of a runt half-pint that I’ll give today to my wonderful Jean at the office.
Truth be told, I still have peaches enough for two more batches.  But . . . I’m out of time, and I’ve used enough sugar to feed a village, so I’m stopping and giving the peaches away.  They need to be eaten or worked up!

So the tally: nearly 11 pints, and 24 half-pints, plus what I’ve eaten and put in my fridge (at least another pint there).  And 20+ pounds of sugar, five pouches of pectin, and a fair amount of cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg.
