If you want to peel a peach, it is a cinch! Bring a small saucepan of water to boil, then gently lower a peach in and allow it to simmer for one to two minutes; then remove from the water. Run under cool water to cool quickly, then the skin should slide right off without wasting any of the precious fruit.
- 2 lbs fresh peaches, peeled, pitted, and chopped
- 1/3 cup raw granulated sugar
- 1 TBSP fresh squeezed lemon juice
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 cup old fashioned oats
- ½ cup chopped pecans
- ¼ cup raw granulated sugar
- ¼ cup whole wheat flour
- 4 TBSP melted butter
Preheat oven to 350° F. In a medium bowl combine peaches, 1/3 cup sugar, 1 tsp cinnamon, and lemon juice. Pour into a 8×8 baking pan. In the (now empty) medium bowl, stir together the remaining ingredients, then put on top of the prepared peaches in the baking pan. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly.
Serve hot with ice cream, yogurt, or whipped cream.
You may also want to double this recipe–I normally do. If so, it will take about 45 minutes to bake in a 9×13 pan.
