So What Does One Do With Frozen Fruit?

I think that’s a spectacularly valid question.  What do you do with frozen fruit?  I have a freezer full of frozen peaches, blueberries and strawberries.  The only thing I had earmarked to do with any of it was that I wanted to use some of the blueberries for blueberry pie on Thanksgiving.  Mission accomplished, and now I have a freezer full of fruit yet.  I think I’ll pull out some of the sugared strawberries to accompany the Christmas Eve brunch of Ina’s Challah French Toast, but other than that, I would love to hear some suggestions from my blog readers!  We’re not smoothie people, we make them a few times a year and realize that we’d just rather eat fruit than drink it, but other than that, I think we’d be open to some suggestions!

As to what I’ve done with it, well, last week as I was pulling a pork tenderloin out of the freezer, I saw a quart bag of peaches and thought about how peaches and pork go together, so I grabbed a bag of peaches and decided to bake some up.  I put the frozen slices into a bowl and tossed them with brown sugar, spices, and a touch of corn starch, and when the pork was done, I had a bowl of baked peaches that the kids went nuts over.  It was really easy and we’ll definitely be doing that again for something different.  I’ll share the basic recipe below, but first, I would be a terrible mom if I did not share at least one photo of Abigail from her Nutcracker experience this weekend.

She had a blast, yet again, and did such a fantastic job.  Zander and I watched all four performances, and enjoyed each and every one while Abigail danced on stage and Daddy helped backstage.  It was a very busy weekend, but well worth it.

Easy Baked Peach Slices

1 quart frozen sliced peaches
1/4 cup brown suagr, packed
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 tablespoon cornstarch
3 tablespoons butter, sliced thin

Preheat oven to 350º.

Place the sliced peaches in a baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray.  Add the brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger and cornstarch, and toss well to coat the peach slices.  Spread the buter slices over the top of the peaches, place in the oven and bake for about 1 hour, or until thickened and bubbly and delicious.

    Thanks Michelle, I guess I just don’t think about using frozen fruit like regular fruit- kinda silly I suppose.

    D, I’m not normally an ice cream in winter fan, but that would be a perfect way to use this! Maybe sprinkled with some crushed gingersnaps for texture!

    Thanks Claire, we all had a great time, and are already looking forward to next year.

    ok im “delurking” once again b/c this post has 2 things i want to say. firtly. being a ballet dancer, it warms my heart so much when i see young girls so interested in ballet! seeing the pictures of your daughter abigail so excited and happy to dance makes me so happy! i love hearing tidbits about her dance classes and how much she loves it throughout the year! on the second note… what this post was actually asking i also have a freezer full of fruit, predominantly peaches, with some blue, rasp and strawberries as well. i love adding them to cereal… for cold i leave the rasp and blueberries and sliced strawberries frozen, and defrost the peaches a little in the microwave. for hot cereal i cook them right into my oatmeal… its very delish. the baked peaches sound divine, i know where my next bag of peaches is going ;) ,
    have a great new year and hapy holidays,

    Katrina, thank you for your comments! Abigail loves ballet, and every time we’re in the Nutcracker she confirms how much she does love it, because it’s completely extra on top of her regular classes. She’s already looking forward to next year, cause she’ll be working her way into pre=pointe to prepare her muscles for the pointe shoes in a few years.

    As to the frozen fruit- that’s exactly what I’ve started doing! Blueberry oatmeal is completely amazing! I’m not big on frozen fruit in my cold cereal, but since I’m an oatmeal fan, it’s been ending up there, and has been fantastic. Since I have peaches, strawberries and blueberries, I was also thinking some kind of compote would be nice, using all three.
