    I’m here to help, my friend. Peeling peaches is actually pretty easy. It does take a little longer that taking out a Y peeler for a carrot or zucchini, but not that much longer.

    It is basically the same process as peeling a tomato. A quick bath in boil water, an “X” on the bottom, quick blanch and then peel.

    Boiling the water takes the most amount of time. You’ll be a peach peelin’ pro in no time at all! Here the easy step-by-step instructions on how to peel a peach.

    Fill a medium saucepan halfway with water, bring to a boil.

    While waiting for the water to boil, fill a medium mixing bowl with cold water and few ice cubes.

    Using a sharp paring knife, score an “X” in the bottom of each peach.

    When the water comes to a boil, drop 1-2 peaches into the saucepan. Before careful to not crowd the pot. Boil for 30-45 seconds.

    Using tongs, remove and plunge into ice water. Allow to sit for 1 minutes before removing to a plate.

    Skin should easily peel off the peach. If not, plunge back into the boiling water for 20 more seconds.

    Peaches will not be cooked, but kind of slimy. Easy to just pull the skin off.

    Use peeled peaches in peach salsa, savory recipes that call for peaches peach cobbler, Sparkling Peach Sangria or my Southern Peach Pie!
