Peach Freezing Directions

 

 

Preparation (peeling & anti-darkening)

 

    Dip peach in boiling water for 30 seconds, then dip into cold water and remove skin. Once peeled, cut as desired (halves, slices or chunks) and remove the pit.

   

    To prevent the darkening of peaches during preparation and storage, treat the cut pieces with a solution of water and ascorbic acid, citric acid or lemon juice. Use 1 teaspoon of ascorbic acid, 1 teaspoon citric acid or 3/4 cup lemon juice to 1 gallon water.

 

 

 

    Recipe (with sugar) 

 

* 1 cup white syrup

* 2 cups white sugar

* One (1) 6 oz. can of frozen orange juice concentrate

* 10 cups of cut peaches

 

1. Combine syrup, sugar & OJ concentrate (mixture will thin as peaches make their own juice)

2. Cover peaches with the mixture in freezer-safe containers or bags (leaving space for them to expand) then freeze.

 

 

 

    Sugar-Free alternative

 

    Although sugar helps maintain quality longer, it is not needed for the preservation of frozen fruits. Peaches can be frozen in unsweetened juice (apple juice is a good alternative) or water. Just be sure to treat your peaches for darkening if using a sugar-free alternative (see directions above). Artificial sweeteners may be added to water juice in an amount equal in sweetness to a sugar-sweetened syrup.

 

 


 
Another easy freezing method shared with us from one of our valued customers:
 
Lay peaches on a sheet pan and put into freezer until frozen solid. Then put the peaches into bags and keep frozen until ready to use. To peel the skins for use, run them under cold water and the skins peel right off.
