No. 3 : Clever Idea

Here’s the quickest way to peel and pit your peaches, without losing any of the delicious fruit. Bring a small saucepan of water to a boil on your stovetop. Wash your peaches and lightly cut an “X” in the bottom of each peach. Using tongs, place a couple of peaches at a time into the hot water. After about 20 seconds remove them with the tongs and repeat with your remaining peaches. The skin will pull off easily. To pit a peach,  run your knife around the circumference of the peach and twist the halves apart.
