If the thought of removing the skin from a peach is daunting to you, let me assure you that it’s a very simple process that only takes a pot of boiling water, a bowl of ice water, and a paring knife.
Here’s the fast and easy way to remove the skin from a peach…Do it once and you’ll be a pro for life 🙂
- Bring a pot of water to boil over high heat.
- In a large bowl, add enough ice and water to make an ice bath.
- Use a paring knife to score an X into the bottom of each peach.
- Use a slotted spoon to gently lower the peaches into the boiling water.
- Allow the peaches to sit in the boiling water for approximately 30 seconds.
- Use the slotted spoon to remove the peaches from the pot and carefully place them in the ice bath.
- Use the paring knife to carefully peel the skin off the peach starting where the X was cut on the bottom.
Low Sugar Fresh Peach Sorbet with Sage could not be easier to make. Since sorbet has only a minimal amount of sugar it’s the perfect dessert or snack for when you’re looking for something sweet, but don’t want to sabotage your diet by eating a big bowl of ice cream or sherbet that has twice as much sugar and calories.
- In a medium saucepan, heat the water, sugar, lime juice, and sage leaves until the sugar is completely dissolved. Remove from the heat and discard the sage. Cool the sugar mixture slightly.
- Peel and slice the peaches, discard the pit and skin. Place the sliced peaches in a food processor and add a pinch of salt.
- Pour the cooled sugar/sage mixture over the peaches in the food processor and process until smooth.
- Pour the peach mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufactures instructions.
- Transfer the sorbet to a freezer container and freeze for an additional 2-4 hours. Serve and enjoy!
