Peaches can be kept at room temperature to soften, but they do not continue to ripen once picked, so leaving them at room temperature will not increase their sweetness. Peaches can be stored in the fridge uncovered for up to a week.
Preparation Tip: Before cooking or preserving a peach, blanch it to remove its skin. Place it in boiling water for 30-60 seconds then remove with a slotted spoon. Once the fruit is cool the skin should slip off.
Did you know... People who are allergic to peaches are often also allergic to apricots, plums, cherries and almonds.
