I thought it would be fun to do a how to week. So first up, how to properly freeze fruit. If you didn’t know, there is a right and wrong way to do this. Trust me, if you’ve ever frozen fruit the wrong way, you know it because you end up with one big frozen ball of mush. And this ball of mush always leaves you wondering how store-bought frozen fruit always ends up so perfect. Like it actually looks like raspberries or peach slices that hold the shape rather than pink seedy mush. Frustrating right? Well I’m here to tell you, it can be done!
After my peach recipe binge (peach galette, peppered steak with grilled peach salsa) of cooking anything and everything with a peachy twist I thought it was time to lay the final balls of sweetness to rest in the freezer. That is, until the first snow storm strikes and I crave everything summery. Warmed peaches sprinkled with cinnamon and nutmeg on a cold winter day makes my heart go pitter-patter. The sweetness of summer + the spiciness of winter = a tasty dream. Honestly, store-bought peaches have nothing on tree-ripened, sweet, juicy, home-frozen peaches. Plus, you don’t need to add any sugar this way. Maybe that should be a double-plus. The sweetness of these peaches is contained in each slice, it really is an amazing thing.
