    You either have to toss them with Fruit Fresh OR make a light syrup to store them in. I usually make a light syrup, then be sure the syrup covers them completely before freezing in containers. They taste totally like fresh off the tree! You can find a recipe for light syrup in pretty much any cookbook.
