On Thursday, one of my co-workers brought in a bag of peaches from the tree in his yard. At the end of the day, as everyone was getting ready to go home for a 4-day weekend, the bag was still there, and since he said he had NO intention of bringing them back home, and no one else was gonna grab them, I did.
I guess there was about 6-7 pounds of peaches in the bag, and while they weren't the Alberta peaches my wife prefers to can, and a couple of them were pretty beat up...HELLO! Did I mention the price?
All in all, because I had to do some pretty heavy cutting out of bruises, I ended up with only 3 pints...but, that's three pints of peaches that cost me NOTHING(well, I used about 2.5 cups of sugar to make the syrup)...and if I didn't grab them, they would have rotted away on the counter at work over the weekend.
