Cook's Tips:

Once peaches have been tossed with the lemon juice, you can let them stand up to 1 hour before grilling and they won't discolor.

If you prefer, peaches can be peeled. To remove skins, bring 1 quart water to boil in (2-qt.) Saucepan. Carefully lower peaches into water using Nylon Slotted Server. Remove peaches after 1 minute and plunge into bowl of cold water. Pull off skins with Paring Knife.

Purchase a baked angel food cake from the bakery section of the supermarket and you'll keep your kitchen cool while getting a quick start to this easy dessert. Cut angel food cake with a gentle sawing motion using the Bread Knife.
