But now is the best time to take advantage of fruit “seconds”. I just picked up two bushels of peaches for under $8.00.

 

Tips for freezing Peaches:

Dunk the peaches in a hot water bath for 30 seconds and immediately drop into an a bowl of ice water to cool.

The skins will peel right off. (Kids love helping with peeling the skins)

Split or cut in half and layer flat into freezer bags.

Perfect for smoothies all year round.
