How to Blanch Peaches

You will need:

Bring a saucepan filled with water to a boil. Using a paring knife, ideally one such as the Rada Granny Paring Knife, carve a small “x” in the bottom of any peaches that need peeling. Place the peaches in the boiling water for 1 minute.

Hi, Kristy in the Rada kitchen, and I wanted to show you how to blanch peaches. I was going to make a peach pie and I need to remove the peeling. The first thing you need to do is get a saucepan of water boiling. And then you’re going to just make a slight “X” at the bottom of that peach. And we’re going to drop it in the boiling water for one minute.

After one minute, remove them with a slotted spoon, like this Rada Cook’s Spoon, and then you put them into a bowl of ice water.

So, once your peaches have cooled in the ice water, you can drain them. And then the peeling just peels right off. And with these peaches, I have another video where I make a peach pie. And that’s how you blanch peaches.
