    Freezing peaches and strawberries.

    is there any way to freeze strawberries and peaches (seperately) without them getting mushy when thawed?

    Freezing them spread out on a sheet tray on wax paper will allow you to pull out what you need from a large bag. Once frozen you can seperate them before placing in the bag.They usually work just fine for cobblers or pies but not so much for snacking. I like to leave the berries whole and cut them when I'm using them. Peaches I always slice.

    Hey there,

    Strawberries -- I don't think there's a way to freeze them without mushiness when thawed. Strawberries have such a high water content that I doubt there *is* a method that would work.

    I use frozen strawberries for smoothies, and for baking into pies.

    Peaches: if you slice the peaches, and fold them with sugar and lemon juice, they will thaw nicely. I've used thawed peaches in fresh fruit salads, and they were delicious.

    I hope this helps!
