Select a ripe peach.
The key to cutting a peach like a pro is to start with a ripe peach. You can tell if a peach is ripe if it gives slightly when you press on it. If it feels too hard, then it’s not ready yet. If it feels too soft, then it’s overripe and may not be ideal for cutting.
Once you’ve found the perfect peach, wash it off with some water. Then, cut off one end of the peach so that you have a flat surface to work with.
Next, cut the peach in half so that you have two equal halves. If the pit is particularly big, you may want to cut each half into two smaller pieces.
Then, take one of the halves and make a lengthwise cut along the outside edge of the peach, stopping just before you reach the center of the fruit. Do the same thing with the other half of the peach.
Now, take one of the quarters and make a lengthwise cut along the outside edge of the peach, stopping just before you reach the center of the fruit. Do the same thing with the other quarter of the peach. You should now have four equal pieces of peach.
Finally, use your knife to cut off any remaining skin or flesh around the pit. You can now enjoy your perfectly cut peaches!
Rinse the peach.
When you’re ready to cut your peach, first give it a good rinse under cold water. This will help remove any dirt or debris that may be on the surface of the fruit. Be sure to dry the peach off before moving on to the next step.
Slice the peach in half.
Start by slicing the peach in half, then twist the two halves in opposite directions to separate them. You should now have two halves, each with a large, flat pit in the center.
Next, take one of the peach halves and slice it into thin wedges. Start at the center of the peach and slice outward, angling your knife so that each slice is slightly thinner than the one before it. Make sure to stop slicing before you reach the skin!
Once you’ve sliced all of the wedges from one half of the peach, repeat with the other half. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 24 hours.
Remove the pit from the peach.
Cutting a peach can be tricky, but with this technique you’ll be a pro in no time. To start, remove the pit from the peach. You can do this by slicing the peach in half and then twisting the halves in opposite directions. If the pit doesn’t come out easily, use a spoon to remove it.
Once the pit is removed, cut each half of the peach into wedges. To do this, make a lengthwise cut along one side of the peach, and then make crosswise cuts to create wedges. Try to make all of the wedges roughly the same size so they’ll cook evenly.
Finally, use your knife to remove the skin from each wedge. Start at the top of the wedge and slice down towards the bottom, following the curve of the fruit. The skin should come off easily if the wedges are properly cut. If you have any difficulty removing the skin, you can blanch the peaches in boiling water for 30 seconds to 1 minute before cutting them.
Cut the peach into slices.
First, cut the peach in half, then slice it into thin wedges. For a more uniform cut, use a paring knife to remove the pit and then slice the wedges. If you are using a serrated knife, make sure to saw back and forth gently so that you don’t damage the fruit.
