How to Make Peeling Fresh Peaches


  1. Start with fresh peaches.
  2. Rinse peaches thoroughly and cut away any bruises. Score the bottom of each peach and prepare a large bowl of ice water.
  3. Place peaches in boiling water for approximately 40 seconds. If the peaches are not quite ripe, you will need to add an extra 15-20 seconds. Make sure peaches are completely covered.
  4. Using a slotted spoon remove to the ice water.
  5. Slip the skin off the peaches using your fingers, a soft fruit peeler or a paring knife.
