HELP! Need advice or instructions on freezing fresh peaches.
We do this all the time with great success.
Slice them and lay them, single layered, on wax paper. Freeze overnight. Once they are frozen, put them into a freezer ziplock or equivalent, squeeze out the air and you are ready to go.
Let them come to room temperature naturally, don't microwave them as they dry out. Enjoy!
Here is something we like to do with sliced peaches. Take an empty icecube tray and put a piece of peach with a tooth pick in each cube, then we fill the cubes with Mountain Dew and freeze them. They make a nice refreshing snack.
I dip them in boiling water for 1 minute, then into cold water and peel before slicing and bagging.
Great advice and I'm going to try the ice cube snack. You can also blanch, peel, slice and put in a freezer container--then add some simple syrup to cover and freeze. These containers stack really well and take up very little space. When ready to eat, just put in frig to thaw and your set. Adding a little fresh mint when your making your simple syrup also adds a nice flavor to the peaches.
