I have a friend named Karen. Karen is quite a gardener both in vegetable gardening and in flower gardening. She works hard every summer to make her home a luxurious experience for the eye as well as the palette. This year her hard work paid off again but it paid off big for her neighbors and friends and I count myself lucky. You see, Karen is off to South Africa for 3 weeks and that just happens to coincide with peach season in her lovely backyard. I was happy to receive the call from her just before she left town telling me I could come over in about a week’s time and pick peaches. I will freeze a few, have canned a few jars of peach syrup, plan to bottle several jars of peach halves and today I made a peach crumble. Actually I made one yesterday as well and I will most likely make another tomorrow. You simply cannot get enough of peaches when they are in season.
I have several great crumble/crisp/cobbler recipes but this one is easy, petite and delicious. If you are lucky enough to be the proud owner of 7 or 8 peaches preheat the oven and call your hubby and tell him to stop for a half gallon of vanilla ice cream. You will be so glad you did! Thanks Karen!
