  • 1 Ripe Peach washed and dried


  • Hold the peach vertical with the stem upwards
  • Using a sharp paring knife held vertically with the peach, insert the blade carefully until you hit the pit
  • Roll the peach around the blade of the knife ensuring the blade is touching the pit the whole time until you have reached your original cut.
  • Place the peach in the palm of your hands and twist to separate the two segments. Pop the pit off with your fingers if the peach is ripe or loosen first with a knife and then remove with your fingers.
  • Slice in the same direction as the peach was halved to your desired thickness.


Storage: Ripe, uncut peaches will last in the fridge for 5 days while cut peaches will usually last for 2-3 days. Add some lemon juice on top to slow down the oxidation.
