Recipe: Peach Crumble

I picked up these wonderful peaches on my trip to Asheville this weekend wonderful niece.  I had actually stopped at the fruit stand for strawberries, but they were out.  All they had were peaches!  It was a surprise to see them this early in the season, but they are yummy.  Going to try out this recipe with them tomorrow.


2 lbs. fresh peaches, peeled and chopped (about 6 cups)
2 t sugar
1/4 c pecan halves (or other nut of your choice)
1/2 c oats
1/4 c whole wheat flour
1/3 c packed brown sugar
2 T unsalted butter, chilled


Preheat the oven to 375-degrees.

Put peaches into an 8 or 9 inch square baking pan. Sprinkle with sugar. You can also add cinnamon (about 1/2 t) and nutmeg (pinch) if desired.

Use a food processor or blender to coursely grind pecans. Add oats and blend for 10 seconds more. Combine with flour and brown sugar. Cut in the butter until crumbly. Sprinkle mixture over the peaches. 

Bake 30 minutes, or until the peaches are tender and the topping is golden brown. Serve warm or at room temperature. 

Recipe makes six generous servings.
