A "Peachy" Idea
Over the last several weeks around our home we have had lots of yummy
fruit we have been busy preserving. By the time my very last box of fruit was
brought to me I was plain tuckered out from all canning so I came up with an
idea for my peaches that was EVER so easy. I simply halved them, pitted them,
laid them skin side up on wax paper on a cookie sheet and froze them. After
they froze all the way I stuck them in zip lock bags and back into the freezer
they went. I'll answer your questions even before you ask. No, they did not
turn brown at all. And no, I didn't even bother to peel them. We have used
them in smoothies already and they are yummy. The kids take about
2 cups milk, 4 peach halves, and a banana and blend in the blender. Seriously
tastes like peach ice cream.
This picture was taken before I froze them and they still look just this.
Every peach kept their color. I completely expected them to turn but none of
Oh and lets not forget about the tons of zucchini I have gotten from our garden.
So far I have frozen 20 batches of bread. Which will come in handy when we start
back school full time. My kids love having it for breakfast so all I have to do is pull
from the freezer making breakfast a breeze. They love to smear a chunk of it with butter.
