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!!!

That does indeed look lovely. I bet its lovely with a dollop of ice cream too!! :) Its times like this that I wish I had easier access to fresh berries and peaches!!
Oh, I love crisp! We usually have the apple cranberry variety more around the holidays but now you have inspired me to make a spring version. I also love to serve it as a treat for breakfast. BTW, my Reagan made the chocolate/pb bars and they were a huge hit at home and with all of her freinds at school. She's making a double batch tonight for school spirit night tomorrow. Thanks for all the great ideas!
Judy, I luv crisps for their fruit, not too sweet and they give one an excuse to eat some more ice cream!
Peaches and berries are a match made in heaven. :) That crisp looks so good!
fruit crisp + vanilla ice cream = easy and delicious! looks great!
Dharm-It is great but Ice Cream is an issue here so all they got was whipped cream!
Lmcc-We eat crisp alot here. It's quick and easy and you almost always have some rotting (no, no very ripe) fruit around! Glad she liked the bars!!
Peter-I love them because I can control the amount of sugar and type. I added some agave nectar to sub out some of the sugar this time!
Heather-that crisp was very good. Didn't make it through the night though and no one will 'fess up!
Good for you for "saving" those peaches, and in such a tasty way!
Nice save with the peaches. You hade a scrumptious dessert.
I find almost expired fruit to be the most delicious to eat in pies, crisps and jams.
Great use of old fruit - I hate throwing stuff out too... but it too often seems to happen :(
That looks like an amazing crisp Judy! I love the combination of fruits! Good for you for not throwing away the peaches! Next time you can make ice cream, as soon as you get your machine! ;)
