How to Freeze Peaches
For the best flavor, use ripe peaches that give just a little to the touch and smell like a peach. (So not rock hard peaches. Let them sit at room temperature for a few days until they hit that point if they are hard.)
Wash and dry the peaches.
Cut in half and remove the pit. Cut into slices.
Place into a gallon size zip top freezer bag and spread and move so they're all in one layer. Remove as much air as possible and seal.
Freeze for 6-12 months. Use frozen in smoothies, oatmeal, muffins, or crisps.
- If adding to a muffin, cut them up (while still frozen) with kitchen shears to make smaller pieces.
- Try adding frozen peaches to my Peach Banana Smoothie, Peach Puree, Oatmeal with Fruit, Peach Muffins, and Easy Peach Crisp.
- You don't have to peel the peaches though you could if you want to.
- Increase or decrease the amount of peaches as desired. You can also just freeze a few leftover slices here or there to preserve leftovers from kids meals.
