Naked Peaches! How to Boil and Peel Them in a FlashSmitten Kitchen
We’re a little embarrassed that we’ve never done this with peaches. We’re always pitting, slicing, peeling. Pitting, slicing, peeling. But if you need to peel a bushel of peaches in a hurry, this is probably faster. Although Deb warns of slippery peaches sliding around on your countertop. Naked fruit doesn’t always behave, you know.
So, here’s the process:
• Make a small X at the base of the peach with a paring knife.
• Dip in boiling water for about 30 seconds.
• Slip off the skins.
