Fruitful Advice

Fridge vs Counter

What’s the best way to ripen peaches?

The answer depends on how quickly you want to use the peaches.  Roger often recommend that you put the peaches into the refrigerator as soon as you get home from the farmers market.  About 2-3 days before you want to eat them, move some peaches to a flat decorative ripening bowl on the counter. Every day, pull a few more peaches out of the fridge to replace those you eat from the ripening bowl.

FREEZING YOUR FRUIT

Raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries,  cherries, peaches, cranberries, even apple cider, can be frozen.  And it’s a lot easier than you might think.  Simply place a single layer of cleaned stemmed berries (pits removed from peaches and cherries)  on a cookie sheet or large lasagna pan in the freezer overnight. Transfer the frozen fruit / berries to a freezer bag or other re-sealable plastic container.  When you are ready for fruit smoothies, muffins, pancakes, etc. just scoop out the specific measurement you need for the recipe
you are using.

When freezing apple cider there are 3 simple things to remember.
  1. Leave enough room in the plastic container for expansion  so that you don’t 
    break the container.
  2. Let the entire container completely thaw before you pour any. The sweetest part will thaw first;if you pour that off, it could be syrupy sweet, and the remaining ice crystals which melt later could taste weak .
  3. After it is completely thawed, then shake up the jug  vigorously.
Some people even freeze the apple cider in plastic tumblers, so that they thaw out a single serving to quench their craving.
