Georgia Peaches

If you’ve ever eaten a big peach that’s sweet as sugar and so juicy that the juice runs down your arm, chances are, you’ve had a Georgia peach.

Yes, peaches are grown in many parts of the U.S., but Georgia has the perfect conditions for growing truly sublime peaches – red clay dirt and the right mix of heat, humidity, and rain.

You can use any fresh peaches for this recipe, but if you can get your hands on them, try them in this ice cream.  They’re amazing.

How To Peel Peaches

This is an easy way to peel peaches and makes the job go quickly, meaning you can peel a lot of peaches in no time.

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a full rolling boil.  The pot should be large enough to accommodate several peaches at a time.  
  2. Use a sharp knife to cut an ‘X’ into the top of each peach.
  3. Reduce the heat to a simmer and use a spoon to lower the fresh peaches into the water.  Let them blanch for about 30 seconds.
  4. Use a slotted spoon to remove the peaches from the simmering water and immediately drop them into a large bowl filled with ice water until they have cooled completely.  You may need to keep adding ice to the bowl as needed.
  5. Use your fingers or a knife to simply pull away the peach skin.
