Nifty Little Trick To Peeling Peaches

Wednesday, July 3, 2013

Speaking of summer, how would you fancy an awesome peach peeling trick? I promise it will make your peach pies, peach jam or even peach ice-cream prep faster, less messy and you won’t feel like you’re wasting half of the fruit in the process!

Well, according to Kellie from Saveur there is nothing easier than peeling peaches using their speedy blanching way. Simply make a small "X" in the bottom of each fruit and drop them gently into a pan of boiling water. Boil them for up to 1 minute (or little less or little more depending on how ripe your peaches are) and then transfer them into a pre-prepared ice-bath-pot for 1 minute before gently peeling off the skin, starting at the "X". I tried it this morning and it worked brilliantly! The peel just slipped right off! Who would have thought? Here is also a how to video if you fancy trying it out.

Would you try it?  xo

P.S: Darlings, wish you all a relaxing, lazy and scrumptious day tomorrow. I'll see you early Friday morning. Cheers to 4th of July!
P.P.S: Also, this beautiful ode to the peach and a few other nifty tricks for garlic, cherries, kiwi and pomegranate:)

How clever. I usually just peel them with a knife but as you said, I feel like I'm wasting the fruit that way. I'll be trying this very soon. Canning season is almost here.
