How to Freeze Fresh Peaches

The summer is incomplete without fresh peaches. If you love the delicious fruit, you may crave it all year long. The peak season for peaches last from July to

August, although they are ready from as early as May until late September. In other months, we have to contend with canned versions.

But fret not peach lovers, this video offers a brilliant way to freeze the delicacies to last all year round.

First, get fresh peaches from your local grocery store or farmers market. Then make a shallow x on the bottom of each peach to allow for expansion when cooking. In a large pot of boiling water, lower three to four peaches at a time for 30 to 60 seconds. Quickly remove the peaches and place into a bowl of iced water and allow them to cool.

Remove the skin of the peaches with your hand or a paring knife. Use a knife to slice down the middle of the peaches and twist to open. Get rid of the pits inside.

Next, you might want to slice the fruit so it will be easier to use later on. Place the slices in a freezer-ready tray, ensure there is space between them, and cover with plastic wrap for an overnight stay in the freezer. Transfer the slices from the tray to a bowl and store until you are ready to use.
