How to Prepare Peaches for Canning or Freezing

This make-ahead pie filling is a wonderful way to use up those Fresh summer peaches & have them on hand for the chilly winter months.

Hopefully, you’ve already Prepared your Peaches .


Once your peaches are pitted and peeled, you’ll need

* 6 lbs Peaches, Sliced

Combine the following

* 2 1/4 c. Sugar
* 1/2 c. Flour
* 1/2 tsp. ground Nutmeg
* 1 tsp ground cinnamon

In a Large Saucepan gently fold sugar/flour/spice mixture into the prepared peaches. Let stand (at room temperature) for about 30 minutes.

Stir in

* 2 tsp lemon peel
* 1/4 c. lemon juice

Cook over medium heat until the filling begins to thicken. Remove from heat, cool a few minutes, ladle into Vacuum Seal Bags and Seal.


Lay flat in the freezer. Once they’ve been frozen you can stand them up to save space, but if you don’t lay them flat to begin with they’ll freeze all wonky and take up too much space.

To use simply thaw, pour into prepared pie crust and bake at 375°F for 45 min or until bubbly and browned.
