How to Blanch Peaches

Whatever you may need skinless peaches for: a pie, a dessert or a salad, or anything else, here is step-by-step instructions how to skin them.

Ripe but somewhat firm peaches are easiest to blanch, so pick these if you have some choice.

It is important to not overcook peaches during blanching, especially if they are on the soft side, or peaches will get mushy and somewhat hard to work with after blanching.


Step-by-step instructions:

  1. Prepare ingredients: rinse peaches if needed, remove stem parts if any:

  2. Bring a pot of water to slow boil, add peaches in (it may be easier to work in batches of 2-3 peaches at the time). Ripe peaches will need only 25-30 secs of boiling, less ripe ones may need a tiny bit more:

  4. Let peaches cool down so they can be handled by hands, then working each peach one by one carefully pick a piece of peach skin with a small knife and carefully remove it off, repeat until peach is cleaned:
