Take advantage of fresh peaches with this summer recipe. Blanching fresh peaches makes them easier to peel. To do this test kitchen tip drop a few peaches at a time into boiling water for 45-65 seconds. Remove with a slotted spoon and place into ice water for 10-20 seconds to stop the cooking process. If the skin doesn’t slide off easily repeat the process keeping the peaches in boiling water for only 30 seconds.
