Easy to Peel Peaches

Skin on peaches can be cut off with a small knife but generally a lot of the peach is wasted using this method. The step-by-step details for peeling a peach below will reduce the waste and allow you to easily remove the skin from peaches.
  • Cut a small slit in the upper portion of the peach skin.
  • Place peaches in a heat safe bowl and pour boiling water over them to cover completely. Leave in boiling water for 30 seconds, remove with a slotted spoon, and stop the cooking process by submerging in cold water.
  • With a small pairing knife, pull skin off. Begin with pairing knife at the top of the peach where the slit was made and pull downward.
This method should result in a cleanly peeled peach with minimal waste.
