Fresh vs Frozen Peaches

Both fresh and frozen peaches can be used. Fresh peaches are usually sweeter and more juicy, but only in season for a few months. On the contrary, frozen peaches tend to be less sweet, but they are always available.

If using frozen peaches, thaw peaches and squeeze out all excess moisture. Otherwise, these easy peach cobblers in a jar will be very runny!

Expert Tips

  • Use small Mason jars (about 4 inches tall). These Mason jars are the one I use!
  • Do not overflow jars.
  • Bake jars on a rimmed baking sheet to catch any overflow. This also makes it easier to take in and out of the oven.
  • Use in season, fresh peaches for best results.
