How To Freeze Peaches

I love peaches, I love peaches even more when they are frozen!!! As a kid, my mom would always buy bulk peaches when in season and freeze them in big batches. I liked eating them when they were still frozen but found it difficult when frozen in large batches. So I came up with this idea…its cheap, easy, healthy and tastes great!!!!

Free stone peaches
Sugar (keeps them from turning brown)

Directions:
Slice your peaces into thin slices, no need to peel them…just make sure they are washed. Place slices on a wax paper (or parchment paper) lined cookie tray. Sprinkle with sugar. Place tray into freezer (make sure you have an empty shelf ready to go!) Once peaches are frozen, remove from tray and place into ziploc bag. Get all the air out of the bag and place in freezer again. This makes a wonderful…healthy snack during the summer. You can enjoy them one at a time or ten at a time! ENJOY!

Note: You can do the same thing with fresh mangos. Did it today and what a healthy cold treat!!!

  1. Wow! What an easy way to do this! I just put up lots of peaches (live near a peach packing house in Georgia). I put some in boiling water to slip the peeling off and just peeled the rest. I sugared some and make a sugar syrup for some. None of was hard, just time consuming.

    Joyfully,

  2. I’ve already got a surplus of pears from 2 trees this year.My bassett hound would eat each and every one if I didn’ go out daily and pick them off the ground and the lower limbs.[Then it's a trip to the vet]He actually guards these trees like its Fort Knox! Anyway I do the same thing as above for the peaches. For a treat for this lovable hound and the others[5],I puree the slices with little rice milk,pour into Ice cube trays,freeze.then put them in freezer containers. I make cobblers,have a bowl with some cream or Icecream,out of the container[until I give myself a tummy ache] Oh so goood!

  3. Did you know that you can freeze peaches right off the tree?? Just place ripe(not partially ripe or green) peaches on a cookie sheet, when frozen place in a freezer bag. To use take the number of frozen peaches you need from the bag, wash, (if you use hot water the skin will just slide right off a ripe peach) slice and use in your recipe, or eat like a fresh peach. If eating like a fresh peach do it before it completely thaws and has some ice crystals in the slices, it will taste just like it came fresh off the tree. Got this from the owner operator of a peach orchard here in peach country in Colorado!!
