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.
