LOOKING for: Peach 'apple' sauce?
For the first time in YEARS our backyard peach tree is loaded. Usually the squirrels get them all. We're eating all we can and giving them away to anyone who walks by, but they spoil practically overnight. My freezer is not big, but I'll save what I can. Unfortunately no one in the family eats jam or jelly except me, and 3 jars would last me a year. I've cut a lot into small pieces, sprinkled them with sugar, and frozen them. Then I will put them in muffins (or something) in the winter when I bake.
What else can I do? I don't bake at this time of year, and no one really wants peaches in yet another form, not right now.
Can I make something like applesauce? Puree in the food processor or blender? Then freeze? I imagine I'd really love some peach sorbet...later. Is it better to add sugar when first blending it or freeze without?
