Freezing Whole Peaches!

Wow! What a simple way to keep those peaches that you're just too tired to find another canning/dessert recipe for!

Canning and Freezing
Freezing Fresh Peaches

This may sound unbelievable to many of you but this is a great way to freeze peaches.

How to freeze peaches!

Let whole, unblemished peaches ripen - dead ripe. (I did not wash first)

2. Arrange whole peaches on a cookie sheet and place in freezer.

3. After peaches have frozen solid; place them in a plastic bag.

4. When you are ready to use, removed the desired number of peaches from the bag, run cold water over frozen peach and slip off the skin.

5. Microwave for 10 to 15 seconds.

6. Slice peaches to use as you desire for cereal toppings, pies or cobbler, ice cream, or simply slice them, add a little sugar if needed and enjoy.

Peaches frozen this way taste just like peaches picked fresh from the tree. IF IN DOUBT, TRY A FEW! You will never freeze peaches any other way again.

So glad this method will be a stress-reliever for you! I think it's great and easy and I hear it's a good way to make peach pie all year long!
