Kitchen Tip - How to Easily Peel Peaches

Lynn demonstrates how to peel peaches the easy way for recipes such as salsa.  This method works equally well if you have a recipe that calls for peeled tomatoes.

To peel peaches, fill a large stockpot with water and bring to a boil.  Cut a small X into the bottom of each peach.  Drop the peaches into the boiling water for approximately 1 minute.  Using a slotted spoon, remove the peaches and immediately submerge into an ice bath to stop the cooking process.  Gently peel the peaches using your hands or a paring knife (the riper the peach, the easier this will be).
