    about this time here peaches become locally available. Its been a wet year so far and they look in good shape.

    Has anyone frozen them whole with the skin on?

    You know...I have never tried a whole frozen peach with skin. That's a feat tryna eat it while frozen. But I do love slow cooked peaches kinda like a cobbler but without the crust, mix some cinnamon in it. Mmm delicious! Lol

    As I was guessing, you're supposed to blanch them first.

    An alternative is to get a food dehydrator and dry them. Still requires cutting them into fairly small slices but you don't need really to blanch them. On the plus side they shrink and take up less space.

    Peaches are good, however, they are the fruit that has the most pesticides used on them. If you can find a true organic peach your better off. The market peaches are really hard to distribute due to bug infestation.

    Sure. But I find it easier removing the pit first.

    Seriously, freeze them sliced and pitted.
