Peaches are a favorite with most people, due to their juicy, luscious flavor. They are very versatile frozen. The best and easiest way to freeze peaches is to freeze them in a dry sugar pack with ascorbic acid, such as Fruit Fresh, available in most food stores.
Select only good quality, ripe peaches for freezing. Rinse and peel them without dipping them in boiling water for the best quality and most attractive frozen fruit.
To freeze, place the sliced peaches in a large shallow bowl or a 1 quart pyrex glass measuring cup. Add 2/3 cup granulated sugar for each quart of peaches and ascorbic acid according to the type being used. Mix the fruit with the sugar until dissolved, working with only one quart of fruit at a time to prevent darkening. Immediately place in a freezer quality plastic bag or a rigid container and label the date and the amount of sugar used.
