I love peaches and a perfectly juicy peach can turn an icky day into a peachy keen day! However, I do not like peaches from a can, I do not like them in a pan and I do not like them in the sand. Peaches shouldn’t be in a can! BUT – you say what about the perfectly peeled peaches in the can? I say yes you can, you can peel peaches and never eat them from a can!
Gee can you tell I have toddler and guess what books we read!?! Anyway, here is a simple way to peel peaches.
Bring a large pot of water to a full boil. Score the bottom of the peaches with an X. Do not cut all the way through the peach just cut the skin.
Use a slotted spoon to remove the peaches from the boiling water and transfer immediately to a bowl full of ice water.
