Peaches. Could be a pet name for your sweetie. Or it could be the real thing. Frozen, for you to enjoy any time!!

lemons, juiced

sugar

 

Place 3-4 peaches at a time in boiling water for 30 seconds. Remove peaches using slotted spoon and immerse in ice water until cooled. Slide skins off, starting at the stem area. Cut each peach in half, remove pit, and slice each half into 4-6 slices. Place in large bowl. Pour lemon juice over peaches to prevent browning (juice of 1 lemon for every 15 peaches). Toss lightly to coat each slice. Pour sugar over sliced peaches (1/4 cup sugar for every 2 cups of sliced peaches) and toss again. Let sit for 10 minutes or until peaches are juicy. Label quart freezer Ziploc bags with date. Place 2-3 cups sliced peaches in each bag and seal after removing air. Lay flat to freeze.

 

*1 quart bag = 3-4 peaches

    Peaches. Oh yum. I could hang out eating those all day long. Peach juice dripping clear down to my elbows. Such a lovely life, that one. I’ve canned untold quarts of peaches over the years, but I never froze them. It would be a monumentally good thing for me to do. I might even go to bed at a decent hour so that I could get up early and freeze peaches the next day. Very good plan. Thanks for reminding me that peaches could be frozen.

      Isn’t peach season glorious?? If I wasn’t so Type A and had to have things so orderly, I might just let peach juice drip down my elbows. Or bathe in it. It really is such a fabulous thing! :)
