ARRRRGGG...so I buy some peaches, I get all the stuff ready. I pop the peaches into boiling water like you're supposed to, 30-60 seconds, then into cold water. The skins are supposed to slip off, but they didn't. Undaunted, I peel a couple..and I can't get the things off the fucking pit. I'm supposed to halve and pit them, there's no halving, no pitting because they are cemented to the pits. I'm exerting all my strength trying to get the fucking piece of shit bastard peaches off the goddamn pits and all I can do is get slimy chunks...not halves..and half the peach is still stuck to the pit. What the screaming hell is with selling peaches that are inedible to eat, hard as rock, but also impossible to can? They're worthless. I wasted the money I spent on them because they aren't good for anything, plus I made simple syrup (a quart of sugar) wasted. Crap crap crap crap crap I hate it when something that takes so much planning falls to shit.
