Peeling Peaches

For this recipe, you can cook the peaches with the skin on if you’d like. If you prefer to peel the peaches, use a paring knife and cut the peach around the middle to separate. Remove the pit. If you’re dealing with cling peaches, check out this post on How to Cut a Peach to cut around the pit.

Add peach halves to a pot of boiling water for about 60 seconds. Once you can see the skin starting to come away from the flesh, it’s time to take them out.

Remove using a slotted spoon and place in an ice bath for 1 minute. Use the slotted spoon to remove the peaches from the ice bath. Grab one of the peaches and gently peel the skin back.

Pro Tips/Recipe Notes

  • You can use frozen peaches (related: How to Freeze Peaches). Let them heat up in the pot with 1 cup water. You’ll need to cook everything a bit longer to reduce the liquid that is produced as they defrost.
  • You can reduce or increase the sugar depending on your preferences and the sweetness of the peaches. I recommend starting with 1/4 cup and tasting as you go.
  • If you cooked the peaches with the skin on and would like to remove the skin from the final syrup, pour the hot syrup after blending through a fine-mesh strainer placed over a mixing bowl. You may need to use a spatula to push it all through.
  • The syrup will keep in the fridge for up to two weeks. You can also freeze it for up to six months in small wide-mouth canning jars or Souper Cubes.
