Freezing Stone Fruit

When there are some peaches, nectarines or plums in your kitchen that are "headed south", you can freeze them for use later in smoothies, muffins or on top of yogurt or oatmeal...

Here is how:

wash and dry the fruit
Cut it in half and remove stone or "pit".

Put on a cookie sheet (I line mine with freezer paper.) and put on the freezer until firm.  Then put in freezer containers or bags.  It will keep for about 6 months.

I just got a Food Saver and I LOVE IT.  I freezing all kinds of things I would have never tried before. 

Now I can have a bit of summer fruit in the winter.  Yummy!!!  Maybe I buy a bunch of peaches or nectarines from the farmer's market...Summer Peach Crumble for Thanksgiving??
