You can peel or not peel the peaches. Without the peel, the texture will be smooth and pure yellow. With the peel, the sorbet will have more texture and tiny flecks of pink.

Loved it. I've fallen in love with sorbets this year (and switching from ice cream to sorbet has really knocked off the pounds). This was the best peach sorbet I've ever had. I didn't peel the peaches, and it created the most gorgeous deep vermillion-colored sorbet ... I also threw in some Triple Sec at the end of the freeze cycle (to help prevent it from freezing too hard), and a few tablespoons of crystallized ginger. Really lovely! Thanks for posting this.
