I read about it on one of my favorite blogs, Heavenly Homemakers. You can read Laura’s post here.
Shortly after reading her post, our family was blessed with a box of peaches that was turning quickly. We enjoyed them fresh, I experimented with several delicious recipes, and I knew I had to try freezing them whole. It is the easiest method I have found for freezing peaches.
Here is how I did it:
1. I washed each whole peach.
2. I let them air dry on the counter for a few hours.
3. When they were dry, I put them into a freezer-safe Ziploc bag and into the freezer.
A week or two later, I decided it was time for peaches so I let them defrost on the kitchen counter for about 4 hours.
The peels slipped off easily. I cut them and placed them into a large, glass bowl.
They were still nice and icy which I’m sure would have been a cool, refreshing treat right then. I was busy with company, however, so mine went in the refrigerator.
After dinner, I drained the juice from the bowl into a glass jar which I later used in a smoothie.
To the drained peaches, I added a little cream, cinnamon, and a pinch of sugar. Delicious!
No blanching! No peeling! Perfect!
If you have a bounty of summer peaches, considering freezing some to enjoy later in the season.
Need a few suggestions on how you might enjoy the last of the summer peaches? Try these recipes:
