Peel Peaches

I'm gonna bake a cake and at the bottom of the recipe there was a tip on how to peel peaches. Because I'll forget how to do this and will have to look it up later, I'm posting it for my convenience. Hopefully it works for you too.

Boil water in a large pot.

Add peaches to the boiling water for about 30 seconds or until skins loosen.

Cool in ice water. Or not.

Peel skins with knife.

Really, this is simple. The skins actually get loose, just very slightly wrinkled. Once you make a slit in the skin you just lift it away and there won't be any fruit loss. Blanching is cool.
