I ran across this today and wanted to share. They are ripe and cheap at my Farmers' Market and I will be freezing this week.

Thanks for sharing that. I will be doing some freezing with white grape juice and ascorbic acid.

one of my chef friends splits peaches in half, pits and lays them cut-side down on parchment-lined baking sheets to flash freeze. Then he bags them and they stay individually frozen, so he can use the right amount for pastries in the fall & winter, without having to defrost a whole bag at a time.

The article says freezer burn comes from air pockets when dry freezing. I doubt most cooks have the kind of freezer which can flash freeze.

For berries I always lay them out on cookie sheets, freeze them and then put in zip lock bag or container to freeze. Then I grab a handful of individually frozen berries for recipes and especially for pancakes. Maybe peaches are too dense for this method?
