As a child I helped my grandmother can summer fruits and vegetables. I didn't always appreciate this activity when I was young, but now I miss her terribly and wish we could have another summer afternoon in her kitchen. I think she would enjoy this recipe. —Katie Ferrier Gage, Houston, Texas

  • 4 cups chopped peeled fresh peaches (about 4 large)
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
