Start with fresh, ripe peaches. If you're going to eat them raw, make sure they have some give to them and even feel a bit soft. Slightly firmer peaches - those that might have a bit too much bite for eating raw - are perfect to using in baked goods like Peach Pie - since they will hold their shape a bit when cooked. For tips on knowing when peaches are ripe, see How to Buy Peaches.

There are two ways or approaches to slicing peaches - peeling and then slicing or slicing and then peeling; I cover both of them here.
