It’s autumn and time to pick peaches. We planted a peach tree three years ago when we moved into our home, and now it’s bearing lots of fruit. This season is our first picking, and we are enjoying the harvest.
Our favorite way to store fresh peaches is to freeze them naturally, without any added sugar. It’s a simple method that goes by quickly. Watch this video where we show you how to pick, peel, and freeze peaches. The first two steps are helpful whether you plan to can or freeze your peaches. Preserve them however you’d like and enjoy a taste of fall year-round.
In the video, you see that we use an outdoor burner to blanch the peaches. You can also use your kitchen stove if it’s not glasstop, which ours is. We prefer to cook outside anyway with the burner so our kitchen doesn’t get hot. Plus the gas burner heats up super fast and is easy to control the temperature.
