Notes

  • If you plan to cut MANY peaches, you'll want to use the blanching technique to remove the skins.  
  • Use this technique if you are peeling fewer than 5 peaches.  If more, then use blanching to peel the peach.
  • Peaches are typically cut into 8ths for pies, however, use your judgement with the size peaches you have available. 
  • You'll want to include the juice in whatever application you are using. 
  • Choose peaches that are fresh and with no bruises or mold.
