Prep time: 15 minutes
Ingredients:

  • 10 peaches

  • Lemon juice

Instructions:

  • Wash peaches.

  • If you wish to freeze them skinless, see blanching instructions below. (Freezing skinless is not necessary.)

  • Cut peaches into slices.

  • Combine 2 tablespoons lemon juice and 4 cups water, and stir. Soak peach slices in lemon bath mixture for 5 minutes.

  • Drain peaches in a colander. Drain as much excess water as possible.

  • Arrange peach slices on a baking sheet and freeze overnight

  • Place frozen peaches in a freezer bag, freeze, and enjoy for up to a year!

Instructions for Blanching:

  • Before starting the canning process, you must blanch your peaches to take the skin off. Gently cut an "X" on the bottom of your peach, only piercing through the skin, not the flesh of the peach.

  • Bring a pot of water to boil. Fill a separate, large bowl with ice water.

  • Place peaches into the boiling water for 20-30 seconds. Take out of boiling water and place into ice water mixture until peaches have cooled thoroughly. 

  • Peel peaches starting where you cut the "X" into them. Peel until all the skin is gone from your peaches.

  • Place peeled peaches into ascorbic acid or lemon juice to prevent browning while you prepare your cans.
