The Calhoun County peaches are here! Our family enjoys peaches as a sweet summer treat. There are a few peach sellers at the Farmer’s Market, so it was quite easy to pick up a half of a bushel and bring them home to be used for smoothies, jelly and cobblers. Yum Yum.
Larry and I eat a fruit smoothie almost every morning. Frozen peaches from the local grocery store are quite pricey. Making your own frozen peaches for smoothies is easy and much tastier.
I washed and sliced 20 or so peaches. I dipped each peach slice in lemon juice, to prevent browning, and placed them on a cookie sheet. Freeze the peaches for 2 hours or until fairly hard. Freezing them on the cookie sheet will keep them from compacting in a big frozen heap. Place them in a gallon bag and stick in your freezer, ready for your next smoothie.
