I think you need to sprinkle the sliced peaches with lemon juice to keep them from browning. You could lay them on a lined cookie sheet, cover with plastic wrap and freeze, then bag. Or just place the amount you would need at one time right into a freezer bag or container and freeze.

I only freeze them in premade pies. I make a crust and then fill it with peaches already spiced and ready to go...then slip the whole pie plate into a freezer bag, and freeze then when I want a pie, I let it thaw, and add the topping or top crust...I don't think I know any other way.

I will peal them, slice them into a bowl with lemon juice in water, drain well and freeze in air tight containers. If you don't add sugar before freezing you can use them in any recipe without worrying about extra sugar.

all I do is slice them up, sprinkle with a little sugar, only enough to give a thin covering, bag them up and freeze.
I use straight from the freezer as a pie filling or to make a topping sauce, as when thawed they are a bit mushy

I just use any peaches that are going cheap

Freezing Fresh Peaches

This may sound unbelievable to many of you but this is a great way to freeze peaches.

How to freeze peaches!

Let whole, unblemished peaches ripen - dead ripe. (I did not wash first)

2. Arrange whole peaches on a cookie sheet and place in freezer.

3. After peaches have frozen solid; place them in a plastic bag.

4. When you are ready to use, removed the desired number of peaches from the bag, run cold water over frozen peach and slip off the skin.

5. Microwave for 10 to 15 seconds.

6. Slice peaches to use as you desire for cereal toppings, pies or cobbler, ice cream, or simply slice them, add a little sugar if needed and enjoy.

Peaches frozen this way taste just like peaches picked fresh from the tree. IF IN DOUBT, TRY A FEW! You will never freeze peaches any other way again.

Thank you all for your ideas. My peaches are to arrive the first week of August and I can hardly wait to get them in the freezer.

To freeze peaches, peel, slice, add fruit fresh, the can will tell you how much and then add sugar, put in a freezer bag and pop in the freezer. I freeze them all the time.

Really? I imagine they don't brown because they aren't exposed to air, correct? I have a refrigerator full of peaches!
