How to peel peaches

To use fresh peaches for a recipe, whether fruit salad or a dessert like peach cobbler, you’ll probably want to remove the skin first. You could use a vegetable peeler, but this is just as easy and gives you perfect results!

  • Score an X on the bottom of each peach. (This will help you slide off the skin later.)
  • Drop them into boiling water and cook for 30 seconds.
  • Remove with slotted spoon and put in a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking.
  • Peel off the skin.

It’s best to do them individually so you can cook each one for exactly 30 seconds.
