Freeze Dried Peaches
These freeze dried peaches are so delicious it is hard to believe they are just
peaches with nothing added, no sweeteners or preservatives! Get ready to the
incredibly fresh taste of cling peaches without the worry of when they will be
ripe or the rush to eat them before they spoil.
Freeze Dried Peaches are produced using very low temperatures and a vacuum. This
“evaporates” the water in the fruit from an “ice” state into a gas. The two major
benefits of this process are:
The water as it vaporizes does not carry away with it some of the taste and flavor of the fruit.
Significantly more moisture can be removed than with standard dehydration processes.
No heat is used in the freeze drying process.
Freeze dried fruits and vegetables have a very good shelf life when stored properly.
Only about 3% of the moisture remains when it is ready for packaging. The resulting
peach slices are crispy and extremely flavorful. They are light and crunchy because
very little water is retained, giving them a good shelf life and concentrated flavor
but unlike dehydrated fruit, they retain the size and shape of the original fruit
without any shrinkage. This process also allows the fruit to be dried without the
use of heat or preservatives, yet retain its natural color and taste. These slices
easily rehydrate into peach halves very similar to the original fruit.
Freeze drying provides natural and additive free fruits and vegetables to be stored
effectively for long periods of time. With nothing added - no added colors, flavors,
preservatives, or sugars, Wilderness Family Naturals’ freeze dried peaches are Natural,
Delicious, Gluten-free, Kosher Certified, Organic Certified, and Vegan Verified.
Freeze Dried Peaches are perfect as a snack when eaten alone or as an addition to
cereals and desserts. They rehydrate quickly in water, yogurt, milk or juice and
can be used just like fresh peaches after only a few minutes in liquids.
Add 1 cup freeze dried peaches to 1 cup water and soak for 3–5 minutes until tender.
Drain any excess water. Yield: 1 cup sliced peaches.
