Peeling Peaches for Preserving

You either hate peach skins or love them - I think that the best flavor is in the skin.  However, many people dislike the fuzzy texture of the peach skin - so today I will show you a very easy way to peel peaches.

When I am making peach jam or peach syrup I always keep the skins on because the skin will disappear when cooked - even the picky peach eaters won't notice the skins!

STEP 1:  Simply place peaches in boiling water for 3 minutes
STEP 2:  Immediately remove from the boiling water & place the peaches in a bowl with cold water
STEP 3:  Peel and the skins will come off in large sheets without peeling away any of the peach flesh (see picture below)
STEP 4:  Discard the skin & the pit
STEP 5:  Slice the peaches & ENJOY!!
