Blanch and Peel peaches:
Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
Remove the peaches with a slotted spoon and quickly immerse in an ice water bath until cool to the touch.
Use a paring knife to make a small incision and peel pack the skin. Repeat this process until the entire peach is peeled.
Cut into Slices:
Locate the natural indentation along the midline of the peach and cut it in half using this line as your guide.
Place your thumbs in between the two pieces and pull them apart.
Remove the pit with your fingers, if possible, or use a small paring knife to cut around and remove the pit.
Cut the peeled peach into 1/4-1/2 inch slices
Prepare for Freezing:
Toss peach slices in 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and let sit for 3-5 minutes in it.
