Freezer Peaches

After my apple post, I received several emails with questions regarding how to freeze peaches. The process is much the same, but a little more effort is required to remove the skins.

Here is the process:

Wash the peaches in luke-warm water.
Boil a pot of water.
Dunk the peaches in the boiling water for 30-45 seconds.
Remove from boiling water.
Place peaches into a tub of ice water.
The skins should peel off easily.
After removing skins, slice peaches and remove pits.
Prepare the syrup as listed in the apple post.
Let syrup cool.
Place sliced peaches in freezer safe containers.
Pour cooled syrup over peaches to cover.
Freeze as usual.
When getting ready to use peaches, drain off syrup. Enjoy!
