A Quick Tip for Freezing Peaches

I am not a big canner. I’ve done peaches and green beans and that’s about it. I plan on canning more when we get our big garden growing next year. I even bought all the cool canning accessories. I am not ready to can right now, BUT peaches are on and we love them. Our neighbor’s tree shares a whole branch with us over the fence. If we don’t pick them, they fall off and get eaten by ants. I need to ask my neighbor what kind of tree they want US to plant to hang over the fence in exchange.

It’s REALLY nice to have some good fruit available in the winter so I have been cutting the peaches up and freezing them (after eating a few, of course). Last year, the gallon size freezer bag was just one big chunk of stuck-together peaches. I had to bang the bag on the counter to get a few slices to detach and then the bag would get holes in it. This year, I remembered a trick I saw on some show like “How It’s Made“. I spread the slices out on a cookie sheet and froze them overnight BEFORE putting them in the freezer bag. It worked beautifully! Now we can grab a handful for smoothies without annoying the neighborhood with all the banging.
