One year on our way home from Atlanta, Emma and I stopped to get some Georgia Peaches. I think it might actually be a sin to leave the state in late July (peach season) without them.
If you don’t happen to be traveling through Georgia during peach season, you can find delicious fresh peaches in your grocery stores.
I’ve been enjoying the sweet peaches that I’ve been able to get at our farmers markets and our local grocery store. Right now peach slices are my favorite things to snack on!
Choosing a Good Peach
You want to look for a ripe peach if you are going to eat it that day. A ripe peach is not hard but also not too soft and mushy.
You also want to pick ones that aren’t bruised (brown spots or soft spots on them).
A ripe peach also has a very sweet peach smell to it.
You can grab some harder peaches if you want to use them in a few days but I’ve found that peaches go from perfect to bad in a hot minute.
This recipe that I’m going to share with you is actually one that can be used with peaches that are a bit beyond “great for snacking on” but not overly ripe.
Not a Baker?
If you’ve been following along for a while, you will know that I’m not a baker. I love to cook but I just can’t seem to bake.
I do however know how to make crumbles and cobblers because they are pretty foolproof.
When we got home from Atlanta, I set to work making my peach crumble. I originally was going to make it a crumble/cobbler but that is basically taking all the yummy sugary goodness and using it for both the crust and the crumble topping.
Since we are desperately trying to watch what we eat at this small house, I opted for the crumble only.
How to Make Peach Crumble
I sliced up 6-7 juicy peaches and put them in a large bowl. Added sugar, lemon juice, and spices. I then let it sit on the counter at room temperature for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, so that the peach juice could soak up all the flavors.
Then I put the crumble together.
I poured the peach mixture into a baking dish, topped it with the crumble, and baked it. My crumble wasn’t as golden brown as I would have liked so I put it under the broiler for a few minutes to give it a pretty baked top.
- 6-7 peaches, sliced
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 tbsp fresh-squeezed lemon juice
- 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ground ginger
- 1/8 tsp fresh ground nutmeg
- pinch of sea salt
For the Topping
- 1 cup Einkorn All-Purpose Flour Can use regular all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 stick of butter, melted
- Preheat oven to 375°
- Mix together all peach mixture ingredients in a bowl and let sit while you prepare the topping
- Mix together all the dry ingredients and then pour the butter over and stir until you have a crumble mixture. You can add a little more flour if the mixture is too wet.
- Put the peaches into a baking dish, top evenly with the crumble mixture
- Bake for 45 minutes
How to Serve Peach Crumble
A good scoop of peach crumble on a plate with a scoop of vanilla ice cream is the classic way to serve it.
However, you can also plain or with a dollop of whipped cream.
You might also enjoy it topped with fresh fruit like blueberries.
Why I use Einhorn Flour?
Einkorn grew wild in the Fertile Crescent hundreds of thousands of years ago. The first bread was made with einkorn, and it was Ötzi the Iceman’s last meal.
Einkorn was the first seed planted by the first farmers 12,000 years ago during the Neolithic Revolution. Einkorn moved toward extinction during the Bronze Age. Left untouched, it’s the oldest and purest food in existence today.
Because it is so pure, it is easily digested and can typically be tolerated by folks who are sensitive to gluten.
I personally love the buttery, nutty flavor. I use Einkorn exclusively in my homemade bread and sourdough starter.
However if you truly need to be gluten-free, you can use almond flour in the recipe.
