Usually I like to use this method for peaches, but I can't find for the life of me, any fresh peaches up here right now. I'm not going to stop hunting. They are a billion times better tasting (though not any healthier!) than the frozen peaches I had to settle for. So, I end up using this method instead:
I just steam some frozen peaches the same way I did my peas and beans etc. except I don't strain (as I do peas) afterward and I actually reserve the liquid in the bottom of the pan and freeze it as cubes on its own to mix with cereal or to cool down other food that's gotten too hot or to give in a sippy cup to ease constipation.
