How to Easily Peel Fresh Peaches
Be sure peaches are ripe. Bring a large pot of water to boil. Wash peaches, then use paring knife to make small cross-cut on bottom of each peach. Carefully add peaches to boiling water; cook about 45 sec. Remove from water with slotted spoon; plunge into bowl filled with ice cubes and cold water. Use a paring knife to peel the peaches, starting at bottom of each. If the peels don't come off easily, return peaches to boiling water for another 30 sec. to 1 min. or until peels can easily be removed.
