My grandmother of 93 recently came upon a new trick for peeling peaches. When you are peeling a large quantity of peaches it can be quite time consuming.
Boil some water and place the peaches in the water for about 30 seconds (depending on the size and ripeness). The peach skin will slip right off and leave you with a nice juicy peach. This method is great when making pies, jams, or canning them whole.
