Freezing Peaches Whole
For decades, people have canned peaches and frozen them sliced. But did you know you can also freeze peaches whole? A peach’s fuzzy skin provides a natural barrier against freezer damage, and when thawed, your peach tastes summer fresh. It’s as easy as 1-2-3.
- Wash and thoroughly dry peaches. Place on a parchment- or wax paper-lined baking sheet and freeze overnight.
- Place frozen peaches in a dated freezer bag. Store up to six months.
- When ready to use, run peaches under water a few seconds. Slip off the peel, thaw and enjoy!
