How to pit a peach-
In case you have never pitted a peach this technique will come in handy.
- First, wash and dry your fresh peach.
- Next cut the peach vertically, around the peach.
- Once cut all the way around the peach, pull the 2 halves apart.
- Gently using your knife cut the pit out.
- You can then cut each peach half into smaller sections and then easily peel your peach.
