Ingredients
  • 9 pounds fresh peaches
  • 2 teaspoons Fruit Fresh, (fruit preservative)
  • 3 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons quick cooking tapioca
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 9 -inch pie, top crust
  • 1/2 stick (4 tablespoons) butter
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon or nutmeg
Directions

To peel the peaches, first bring a pot of water to a boil. Using a paring knife, score the peaches with an X into the skins only. Gently drop the peaches in the boiling water for approximately 30 seconds to 1 minute. Using a slotted spoon, remove the peaches and place them in iced water for a minute. The skins should slip off easily. If not, place back into the boiling water for another 30 seconds.

Slice the peaches and put them in a bowl. Sprinkle Fresh Fruit and sugar, and stir into peaches. Stir in remaining ingredients and mix well.

Line 4 pie pans with heavy foil or freezer paper, placing a piece of plastic wrap over foil. Put 4 to 5 cups filling each pan. Loosely fold wrapping around pie and freeze until firm. When filling is frozen solid, remove from pans and wrap tightly. Return to freezer until ready to use.

On pie baking day, for each pie, simply place frozen pie filling in pie shell, add 1/2 a stick of butter and sprinkle with cinnamon or nutmeg. Top pie with an additional pastry crust, seal well, and bake for 50 to 60 minutes in a preheated 375 degree oven.

What does 9 lbs of fresh peaches have to do with frozen peaches? The title is "Frozen Peach Pie Filling" not fresh. This recipes sucks. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this pie recipe an it was delicious. The first one I made right away, without freezing and I should of added more tapioca to that one because it was a little loose. The frozen one's were just perfect. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I didn't add any fruit preserve and baked right away, it was awesome! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was a wonderful recipe! I had no trouble with soggy crusts or runny filling. I lined my pie pan with plastic wrap before filling, then covered and froze it, and left it wrapped when I put it in a gallon freezer bag. It tastes just like fresh peaches when you cook it. I use this recipe every year. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It would be easier if the 9# of peaches were broken down into "cups" of peaches. Any possiblity of that?? item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was very sweet...has anyone tried using less sugar? item not reviewed by moderator and published
It was great having peach pie in January and Feb. Long after peaches were out of season! I will make this recipe every year! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Once frozen and then baked, the filling was very runny. I like the idea of making the filling ahead while the peaches are in season, but I think I'll defrost and drain off the liquid before baking next time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I had a tree full of peaches and did not want to make jam so your recipe came in very handy. WOW, it is sooo good. Can't wait to bake another one for a gathering of friends. I'll be sure to share it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this recipe the other night and now have 4 pies in the freezer. This recipe went together in no time at all, I was about 1 cup short of filling in the last pie I put together. I figure I can always add that when I get my next batch of peaches. You KNOW Im gonna have to make more pies and freeze them as my husband is already trying to get me to bake him one of the pies I just froze!! It's only been 3 nights ago!! Thanks for the recipe Paula!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
