If you don't already know the best way to peel fresh peaches, this tip will change your outlook on cooking with the juicy fruit.
When it comes to peeling fresh peaches, peelers and paring knives are bound to leave you with squashed, chunked-out fruit. But, like with tomatoes, there's a super easy way to get the skin off peaches — you blanch them. Just place them in a bowl, pour boiling water over them, and let them sit for about a minute. Dunk them in cold water and peel — the skins will come right off, leaving smooth, skinless peaches.
