Peach season is in full swing and if you are like me (or my SIL's dad who let me steal a load of peaches!) you might be wondering what to do with all of those peaches! I love to preserve as much as I can in the summertime so that we can enjoy some of the summertime freshness throughout the year.
We aren't big peach jam lovers around here but we love fresh peaches, peach cobbler and peach pie! One of my favorite things to make when I have an overabundance of peaches is this easy freezer peach pie filling.
Here's what you will need:
Gallon size freezer bags
4 quarts sliced Peaches
3 1/2 c. Sugar
1/2 c. Quick Cook Tapioca
2 tsp. Fruit Fresh
1/2 c. Lemon Juice
1 tsp. Salt
That's it! Now put the ziplock bags in the freezer. You can freeze them in the pie tins or just place them flat in the freezer.
When you are ready to make peach pie, you simply preheat the oven to 425 degrees, pop the frozen pie filling in the pie crust and bake for 1 hour. Delicious and simple peach pie filling all winter long!
We also use the pie filling to make peach cobbler by putting the frozen pie filling in a 9x13 pan and topping it with a crumble. Or we even warm it up on the stove (on medium for about 15 minutes, until thick) and eat it over ice cream. So delicious and so simple. Enjoy!
