When life hands you rotting peaches...make a crisp!
The other day I happened upon a very tiny produce stand. I knew that they would have noting local this time of year but I needed a couple of things and I would much rather shop at a produce stand than a grocery store any day!!
This was the same place that I got my Key Limes for the Key Lime Pie I made for this month's Royal Foodie Joust. They also had some early season GA. peaches. I bought a small basket thinking the girls would just gobble them up. Wrong. They just sat there until yesterday when I went to throw them out. I changed my mind about tossing them or feeding them to Enorma (our composter) and instead decided to make a crisp with them.
A Crisp recipe is one of the easiest and most versatile recipes that exist. You can use virtually any fruit or a combination of several. I happened to have some - seen better days - blackberries that I decided to add to. This ended up turning out great. I served it with some fresh whipped cream on the side. Was the perfect ending to our grilled vegetable meal!!!
