Tip: Cutting a peach into wedges—especially when the fruit is still a bit firm— can feel cumbersome. But it doesn’t need to be. Do what I do Cut the peach into wedges while it’s still on the pit! Using a paring knife, cut one ½-inch wedge lengthwise into a peach and then wiggle the knife while twisting the knife up to release the wedge. Continue the process all the way around the pit until you cut off your last wedge.
