Peel Peaches Perfectly And Video

When my local grocery store had peaches on sale for $.48 lb I knew I had to have some.  I bought a bag full with intentions of making some peach crisp and saving some to flash freeze for our summer smoothies.
The peaches I bought weren’t as sweet as the ones I had bought a few weeks ago, but ripe enough for what I had planned for them.  When picking peaches you want them to have a little give when you gently squeeze them.  Of course, look for any blemishes and holes where bugs or birds have taken a bite.
