Peach Peels

Peach season soon will be upon us. I love freezing peaches and have learned to actually put them up before they rot.
It has only taken me 20 years.

Here is my recipe for freezing peaches:

1 quart peeled and sliced peaches
1/2 c. sugar
1 T. Fruit Fresh

Place peaches in a Ziploc freezer bag and add sugar and Fruit Fresh. Seal the bag. Gently shake the bag to mix the ingredients. Let the bag lie on the counter. Turn over/gently work the bag every so often until the sugar is dissolved and a syrup is created which covers the peaches. Freeze flat.

To thaw, I microwave the frozen peaches for 3 minutes. This makes them partially thawed/frozen. Of course I am using a 28 year old Amana Radarange. Your times may vary.

These frozen peaches make a perfect foundation for fruit salad.

1 quart frozen peaches, partially thawed
2 bananas, peeled and sliced
1 apple, peeled, cored and cubed
1 quart of strawberries, hulled and halved
add the following to taste:

Combine and stir gently.

Hey wait a minute! I thought this was a blog about using up old rotten food or stuff that gets thrown out.

I give you peach peel jam.

Don't throw out those peels! Follow the directions on the SureJell instructions for making peach jam and substitute the peels. All those peels make a lot of jam! Or use one of these recipes.

Husband's review: Frozen peaches- 5 stars (out of 5); fruit salad- 5.5 stars; Peach Peel jam- a very generous 2 stars.
Umm umm umm -nothing like a peanut butter and peach peel sandwich. I'm sure there will be more to come from the creative mind of Tarnation.

Can't wait for what? Peach peel jam? There is a ton in the basement. I will be blogging about how to use it up because I am not throwing it out. :)

After I left the comment, I was thinking I should clarify what it is I can't wait for. hehe.
