Sometimes cooked peach skins get tough. Can you score the skins horizontally before cutting vertically into those 1/2 inch slices?

I remove peach skin just like I remove tomato skin. Put them in a pot of boiling water for about 20 seconds, hold under cold water and they come off like a dream.

I've never had a problem with the peach skins being tough in this recipe but your method sounds good, and if you're concerned about this, then I say why not try it!?

In the headnote, Amanda says her mother peels the peaches for the recipe, which would obviate any qualms about the skins ...
