Peach season is here! Go to the market and pick yourself up a basket of fuzzy peaches.
You can tell a peach is ripe when its fragrance becomes extremely sweet, almost like someone has sprayed peach perfume into the air, I love it. The downside though is when a peach is ripe, you have a VERY short time to eat it, preserve it, or make something delicious with it. That’s where my recipe for Peach and Blueberry Crisp comes in.
Peach and blueberry make a great pair and are even better with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. This dessert is meant to be rustic, so you don’t even need spend time peeling peaches – the whole recipe is oh so easy!
Peach and Blueberry Crisp Tips:
- Cutting the butter into small cubes first makes it easier to work the butter into the flour mixture. You know you’re done when the flour mixture looks like a slightly moist course breadcrumb.
- Add the sliced almonds after you’ve worked the butter in the flour mixture so that the almonds stay whole.
- Letting the crisp rest for at least ten minutes before serving helps the juices from the fruit to thicken.
- If you don’t have a rectangular glass baking dish, you can use a square one.
