Peeling a saturn peach?
- LNG212 Jul 31, 2011 12:26 PM
The saturn (or donut) peaches here are really tasty this year. So I was thinking of putting some up - maybe quartered, maybe in jam. But I would need to peel them. And while peeling a regular peach can be a pain (esp. the quantity for jam), how is peeling a saturn peach? Where does one put the little "x" before dipping in boiling water? Does the skin slip off as easily from a saturn peach?
Anyone have any experience here? (Apologies in advance if this seems like a dumb or really obvious question.)
Thanks for the advice.
Well, I know that for regular peaches. But it doesn't seem clear to me there is a "bottom" on the saturn peach. It's more like two "stem" ends, if you know what I mean, since the pit sort of meets (not sure how to describe it). So do I just make the x somewhere on it?
And I wish the skins would always slip off as easily as a cheap hooker's garter! ;) heeheehee
As mentioned on the current peach pie thread, the Messermeister serrated swivel peeler makes peach-peeling a delight. In the case of the oddly-contoured saturns, it would probably be best to slice them off the pit, then run the peeler down the wedges.
