Peach Crumble – in the middle of winter???

February 16, 2011 | Desserts, Fruit

I know you think I must be nuts making something that clearly sounds like a summer dish in the middle of winter. Well, when I got my bison and grass-fed beef home this past weekend to store in the freezer, I took note that I still had used almost none of the peaches from my tree last year.You might recall that I stumbled upon the brilliant technique last summer of freezing peaches whole, right off the tree. No blanching, no peeling, no slicing, no canning – and there they were begging me to do something with them last Saturday night.Making a crumble like this is simple. Just toss the peeled and sliced peaches with a bit of sugar and flour and pour them into a butter dish. Then use your fingers to mix together oats, softened butter, brown sugar and flour, crumble it over the top, and bake for about 40 minutes.Serve for dessert with a little whipped cream. And ps, this is pretty good reheated for breakfast the next day!

Peach Crumble
Serves 6-8

8 peaches
2 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons sugar
8 tablespoons butter, softened
1 cup oats, rolled (raw)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup flour

Peel peaches and cut into wedges. Toss with flour and sugar and pour into a buttered 8 inch square or round oven-safe baking dish. Use your hands to combine butter, oats, brown sugar and flour. Crumble over the top of the peaches. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Let cool slightly before serving.
