Our peach tree has blossomed and is leafing so I thought it would be a good time to post this recipe and you will have it on hand when the peaches come in. Yeah I know it is not for awhile but why not be prepared?
- 1 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1/2 cup flour
- 3/4 cup oatmeal (not instant)
- pinch of cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. freshly ground nutmeg
- pinch of salt
- 1/4 – 1/3 cup unsalted butter
- 3 lbs. peaches, peeled and sliced in 3/4 inch wedges
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- pure Vanilla Ice Cream
This is soooo easy. Stir together in a small bowl the flour, oatmeal, spices and salt. Add the butter and work it in with a pastry blender or your hands until small clumps form.
Toss the peaches in the orange juice to coat. In a buttered 13 x 9 inch baking dish, spread the peaches evenly. Top with the oatmeal mixture and bake for about 30-40 minutes until the peaches are tender and the topping has lightly browned.
Cool to warm and serve with the best vanilla ice cream you can find. Chapman’s or Tillamook come to mind.
