Tip of the Week

How to easily peel a batch of fresh, ripe peaches

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil.
  2. Place peaces in boiling water for 30 seconds: Place peaches, just a few at a time (so as not to crowd the pot), into the water and leave them there for 30 seconds, even if the water stops boiling.
  3. Remove peaches and place in ice bath: Using a slotted spoon, remove the peaches and place them immediately in an ice-water bath to stop residual heat from cooking the peaches. Wait a few seconds, then take the peaches out of the ice water.
  4. Remove peel: Gently rub the skin and peel it off; it should come away from the flesh with minimal effort.
