All my pretty peaches that I need to peel so I can make Honey-Ginger Peach Jam.
Cut peaches in half & remove the pit.
Drop a peach half or two into the boiling water & set timer for 2 mins.
My ice melted! Drop the hot peaches into the cold water & let cool for a minute.
And depending on the ripeness of the peach the skin will practically fall off or might need a paring knife just to get it started. Remove skin & discard.
Repeat steps 2-5 until all peaches are peeled & then follow your recipe. The peaches I peeled were used to make 10 1/2 pint jars of Honey Ginger Peach Jam from Pomona Pectin's canning guide.
