Bring a large pot of water to boil, and drop in whole peaches. Leave for one minute.
Remove peaches with a ladle or slotted spoon and place in ice water for another minute or so.

Easily peel the skin from each peach with your hands.
Cut in half and remove pits.
Cut peaches into segments, place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and freeze until solid.
