tip

To easily peel peaches, score the bottom with an “X” and blanch in boiling water for 30 to 60 seconds or until skins start to loosen. With slotted spoon, transfer to a bowl of ice water to cool and slip off skins.

Ingredients

 

5 cups peeled, pitted and chopped Ontario peaches 1.25 L
1/3 cup granulated sugar 75 mL
1/4 cup fresh lime juice 60 mL
3/4 cup finely chopped red onion 175 mL
