I grew up down the street from a peach farm (actually it’s still there and we still buy their peaches). My mom would buy a box of pretty ones for eating and a box of tattered and bruised ones for turning into cobbler and jam. I carry on this tradition by hitting up my local farmers market for bargains by purchasing fruit that needs to be used up immediately. You know, those bruised peaches and very ripe berries. The sellers will often just get rid of them by the day’s end, so I offer to take those unwanted fruits off their hands and turn them into jams for the winter blues, and they always give me a great deal.
