Freezing Peaches

Filed under: canning and freezing

My friend Melanie and I both bought fresh peaches right off the trees in Stonewall, Texas and want to freeze them. There is nothing like the taste of a Texas peach that has ripened BEFORE it has gone in the refrigerator. Even when one freezes them, they are so much better if they have ripened first!

  1. Put a pot of water on to boil. Make sure the water is deep enough to cover the peaches.
  2. Put water in the sink. Add ice.
  3. Put about 5 peaches in the boiling water. Set your timer for one minute and cover.
  4. Take peaches out with slotted spoon and put directly into ice water.
  5. Take skins off peaches. They will slip off easily.
  6. Cut peaches into slices.
  7. Put 4 cups of sliced peaches in a quart freezer bag.
  8. Label bag with indelible marker. Date.
  9. Freeze. If possible put on an empty shelf where they will freeze quickly.
