 Freezing Peaches 

  • What is better than freshly frozen fruit for a smoothie! The peaches were beautiful at the market- I couldn't resist.

Supplies

  •     Peaches
  •     Cookie Sheets
  •     Boiling pot of water
  •     Knife
  •     Lemon juice
  •     Freezer bags

I bought two varieties—white peaches and the regular golden orange peach. The first thing I did when I came home was give them a good washing. I decided to keep the skins on the white peaches and use them in smoothies.

  • To get the skins off the other peaches I dunked them in boiling water for about 30 seconds and then plopped them in ice cold water.

  • Most of the skins came off pretty easily. A few needed a little help from a knife.

  • Here they are, ready to be cut off the pits and sliced.

  • After I sliced the white peaches I added a few tablespoons of lemon juice to the bowel and stirred it up so they won't get brown. I did the same thing to the other variety.

  • I like to freeze the slices on a cookie sheet so they don't "mush" together in the freezer. I gave my jelly roll pan (and I used the lid) a quick spray of cooking oil so the slices don't stick to the pan.

  • Here they are! Both varieties. Ready to be popped into the freezer. Yeah!

  • This is when I'm glad I have an extra refrigerator/freezer!

  • And here is the final product. I tried to get as much air out of each bag as possible. I like to use the straw trick. Close the bag as tight as possible around a straw and inhale the air out of the bag then QUICK, pull out the straw and close the bag. Be careful not to EXHALE into the bag.

  • Yum!
  • Delicious peach smoothie!

How to Make a Simple Peach Tart

  • Only the crust is baked, and the fruit is all fresh! You can make your own crust or just use store-bought.
