  • Can you freeze cut peaches? Yes, to freeze peaches: (1) Wash, pit and halve or slice peaches; (2) Coat peaches with a solution made of 1/2 teaspoon of ascorbic acid for each 6 tablespoons of cold water to prevent darkening; (3) Add 2/3 cup sugar to each quart of fruit and stir until sugar is dissolved; (4) Place in covered airtight containers or heavy-duty freezer bags.
