Plunging Peaches

You love eating fresh peaches, but when you are baking the skin can get really tough.  Removing the skin is quite simple if done correctly.

Place a large pan of water onto the stove to boil.  Fill a large bowl with cold water and a few ice cubes.

With a knife, cut an X just through the skin on the bottom of each peach.

Place each peach into the boiling water for 20 seconds (Ripe) to 60 seconds (Thicker Skins)

Remove the peaches from the water and place into the bowl of cold water and peel off the skin.  If the skin is stubborn, dunk it back into the hot water for another 20-40 seconds, then back to the cool water.

If the skin still won’t come off, you can use a vegetable peeler to finish removing the skin.
