How Do You Freeze Peaches?


To freeze peaches, first score, blanch and peel them. The pit should be removed and the fruit sliced, and then placed into a freezer bag with water, sugar or syrup, and frozen.

Peaches can usually be frozen for up to 10 months. Follow the steps below to freeze peaches.

  1. Score, blanch and peel
  2. Using a knife, score a cross into the base of each peach. Place them in a pot of boiling water for 30-60 seconds each. Cool immediately in a bowl of ice and water. When sufficiently chilled, remove the skins.

  3. Remove pits and slice
  4. Cut the peaches in half and twist to separate, and then remove the pits with a knife. Slice the peaches if desired.
