Peeling peaches for canning and cooking is quick and easy.
Alyssa and Brittney demonstrated how to peel peaches during our fruit toppings food lab.
First, cut peaches along the “equator,” just through the skin.
Place the peaches into boiling water with enough water to cover. Cook for 30 seconds.
Take the peaches directly from the boiling water into the ice water.
When the peaches have cooled, you will be able to slip the skins right off.
Your peaches are ready for preparation in a cooked fruit recipe.
You can also use this technique to peel tomatoes for a homemade marinara.
