DH brought home a half bushel of peaches that we're planning to freeze. All of the instructions I've seen say to use Fruit Fresh on them to keep them from browning. I have read that a lemon juice water solution can be substituted but is not as effective. Has anyone used fruit fresh or called about it? Unfortunately the website doesn't have a phone number and I'm afraid the peaches will be spoiled before they get back to me via email. thanks.

Hi, I just finished canning peaches...yummy! Yes, I use fruit fresh, I haven't called on it. My PA DS hasn't had a problem either.
The first time I canned peaches I didn't use fruit fresh and the peaches turned a browny colour, but tasted great.
Editing to add...I have frozen peaches without using fruit fresh and they didn't brown.
Have fun

Hello, We use it all the time.. If I pack an apple for a lunch(cut up) I just sprinkle it on.. No problems. It is just citric acid.. I think?? Sorry can't remember

thanks. It is just citric acid (but the website says something about 4 ingredients-it didn't list them) but I was mostly concerned about cross contact, shared lines, etc. I couldn't see where the company made anything else but I can't imagine a company only making one product, especially one that is mainly used by people who can or freeze stuff. I have not heard back from them (as expected) but will be going to the store tomorrow so I'll look at the pkg there and probably go ahead and buy them.
