Peeling Fresh Peaches the Easy Way!

There’s nothing better than a ripe peach. My favorite way to eat it is just the way it comes, right off a tree. Sometimes though, you need a peeled peach for a recipe.

There is a super easy way to peel fresh peaches. It takes only seconds to do! First you need to put water into a large saucepan and bring it to a boil. Using a spoon, gently lower a peach into the water. Don’t drop it! You will splash boiling water on you and bruise the peach!

You can do one or about 4-5 peaches at a time. Let boil 15-20 seconds

Using a slotted spoon, immediately take the peaches out of the boiling water and place in very cold water. (Add ice cubes to a bowl of cold water to make it super cold!) By putting the peach in icy-cold water, you are going to save your finger tips when you peel the peach as well as keep the peach from cooking more in its warm skin.

Then remove the peach from the water and gently use a sharp knife to lift an edge of skin. It will easily peel right off the peach. Now your peach is ready to slice for a pie, on top of cereal, or make into peach cobbler. Yum!
