If you like to can or freeze peaches, you will want to peel them first. If you have been through this before, you'll know that it is a long process. To save a ton of time, try scalding them just like you would scald tomatoes! The skins will come off without trouble and you will get done much faster!
Fill a pot one-half to two-thirds full of water; bring to a rolling boil. Wash peaches and cut an "x" through the skin in the bottom of each with a paring knife. Drop scored peaches into boiling water for about 30 seconds. Remove peaches and place in a bowl of cold water to stop the cooking process. The skins will slide off easily!
