This recipe freezes extremely well, July 3, 2006 - 01:57 PM
Reviewer: from Howell, Mi/Yuma, Az USA
This is a great recipe, especially if you have access to ripe fruit at the peak of it's flavor. Mix together other stone fruits (cherries, apricots and/plums if avaiable) with the peaches and use a little less sugar in this mix. Make at least one recipe but consider two recipes one for now and one for freezing. Freeze the muffin in oiled muiffin liners in the baking tin because these are very tender! Package in serving sizes in zip lock type bags. THIS RECIPE FREEZES EXTREMELY WELL! Microwave the frozen muffins for a rare treat. Freezing IMPROVES the flavor and crumb (texture). Well worth trying.
