Then today I froze 1 bushel of peaches. I enjoy canning and freezing but it does make extra work! Just for fun, I thought I would "walk" you through the process. First, I wash the fuzz off of the peaches and then I peel them and take the seeds out.
Washed peaches- notice the one that is sliced and seeded.Next I slice them up. We like thin, small slices but that is just our preference- you can slice them any way you like. Then I add orange juice concentrate and sugar to them, stir them, and then let them sit for a bit to soak up the flavor and allow the sugar to dissolve. The whole idea of adding orange juice concentrate was new for me when we got married. That is how my husband's grandma did peaches and he loved them that way. So I decided to try it and was sold. It gives just an extra hint of flavor to the peaches and also keeps them from turning brown.
icecream craving and of course is much healthier.
I also can peaches, but not as many since we don't like them that way as well. Besides, I am convinced that freezing has to be healthier since the fruit isn't cooked.
I mentioned being busy. We have out of state family that arrived this evening and will have different family here off and on until Monday or Tuesday. Not that I mind! I love having family around. But I just want to warn you that I might not be able to post extremely often. I want to enjoy family when I have the chance!
