Peachy Craisin Crisp

The local peaches are so juicy and so delicious! I am fortunate that a veggie/fruit stand in my area sells this delicious fruit and it can be purchased in large quantities. The Peach trees are located not far away. Now, my fruit bins in the fridge are full of peaches. Yummy! Biting into a ripened juicy cold peach is the best! After making two batches of delicious Peach Freezer Jam there are still more peaches to enjoy. I made a tasty dessert - Peachy Craisin Crisp. The recipe was easily found, because I used my Apple Crisp recipe - substituting fresh peaches for apples.

*** To easily peel off the Peach skin before cutting into slices – Carefully, place each cleaned, ripened peach in simmering water for about 35 seconds. Remove the peaches from the hot water with a slotted spoon and cool on a plate. When the fruit can be comfortably handled, it can be peeled and cut into slices.
