My uncle, my dad and I were canning peaches today. I was slicing the peaches into quarters with a paring knife. My uncle sits down beside me, pulls out his pocket knife and begins slicing peaches also.

I was like: Um....we have more paring knives.
He said: No, my knife will do.

And he merrily kept slicing peaches.

Yeah....gross.

I would have to throw every peach he sliced out. That is nasty.

Okay. So he gets the canned peaches that he sliced. I'd have just put them in a pile and told him those were his.

If the peaches will be cooked later at high temps, what is the problem?

Doesn't boiling kill bacteria?

I don't know; I've never canned a fruit in my life.

I don't find it particularly gross. Maybe because my DH keeps his knife clean..

My dad used to cut things like rope and fresh fish with his knife then cut a piece of salami and try to get me to eat it. Gross!
