Blanching peaches loosens their skin and makes them super easy to peel. Put the peaches in the boiling water, making sure they are entirely submerged. Blanch them for 40 seconds. If peaches are slightly under-ripe, allow them to remain in the hot water a little longer—up to a full minute—to loosen the peel, it will also improve their flavor.
