Freezing Peaches – Peach Cubes

Posted by on Thursday, September 13th, 2012


This summer I’ve been busy like most working moms.  We’ve painted and camped and cleaned and baked and preserved.  I ran out of time to do as much preserving as I would like to have.  I had 2 bushels of peaches that sat on my counter for a few days, just mocking me as I passed by them.  They got riper and riper and I was determined they would not ruin this year.  So one day I just peeled the peaches, removed the seeds and tossed them in the food processor and made puree out of them.  I had 6 plastic ice cube trays and I simply poured the puree into the trays and froze the peach puree solid.  Then I popped each cube out and placed several in a quart sized Zip-Lock freezer bag.  It was SO easy.  What can you do with peach cubes? I’ve got a few ideas and would love to hear any more you may have.

Toss 3-4 cubes in a food processor with frozen pineapple, OJ, coconut milk, and vanilla protein powder for a tasty breakfast shake.

Toss a few peach cubes into a glass of iced tea for a few minutes to make peach tea.

Toss a few peach cubes into a glass or pitcher of lemonade for peachy lemonade.

Toss a few peach cubes into a bowl of hot oatmeal, reheat if necessary.

Use frozen cubes to make peach cobbler.

Peach cubes, ice cubes, lemon slices, and fresh basil added to fresh chilled water make a refreshing drink.

And you could make fruit cubes as a way to preserve other fresh fruits too. I’ve done strawberry puree and used the cubes in my morning shakes. YUM!
