This will become your favorite easy way to peel peaches! It is a great kitchen hack!
Wash the peaches.
Fill a pot with water. Heat until a low rolling boil. Fill a bowl with water and add ice cubes. Set aside.
Using a slotted spoon, add peaches slowly, one at a time. Lower gently into the boiling water.
Remove the peaches after they have been in the boiling water for about 60 seconds. Immediately put in the bowl of water and ice cubes. This will cool them down and stop the cooking process.
Leave the peaches in the bowl of water and ice cubes for a few minutes. Then remove to a plate. Once fully cooled, you can peel them. Take a knife to cut a little slit where you should be able to peel easily. Or pinch the peach with your fingers and the peel should slide off easily.
Slice the peaches and they are ready for your favorite recipes.
