Peach Progress

This year, along with canning, I have decided to freeze some of the peaches. Freezing is very fast and I am curious which will make a better cobbler; canned or frozen?Instead of feeding the peach peels right away to the chickens I decided to make juice with them first. Simply place peelings into a large pot, be sure to discard the pits, add water and simmer.
I like to simmer until the skins are very limp and have lost most of their color.
Drain; I use a colander for this.
This juice will be used to make jelly.

Thanks! I didn't know about using the peels to make jelly.
