Peeling ripe peaches using a paring knife or peeler can be complicated and could end-up in a mess. Peaches are delicate fruits and peeling ripe ones require a proven technique to maintain the shape and quality of the fruit.
Remember the technique that we apply to cook vegetables while maintaining their crisp and color? It is called blanching. This is done by cooking fruits or vegetables in boiling water for a few seconds to a minute then soaking them right away in ice cold water. Using this technique will enable you to peel peaches easily without creating any mess.
