peach cobbler

in addition to apples, i’m allergic to peaches. i love canned peaches so i am hoping i can eat cooked peaches, like i can eat cooked apples.

however, according to the article on men’s health, peaches are doused in pesticides and according to the USDA, it can contain as many as nine different pesticides by the time they make it to the grocery store. so for this fruit, it is recommended that you buy organic. when eating, was with a sponge or scrub brush and a dab of mild dishwashing detergent. for kids, it is recommended to play it extra safe by washing and paring peaches.

anyhoo, after playing around with many apple recipes, i’m gonna try a peach recipe! here’s a simple peach cobbler recipe that i saw guy fieri make last week. i like that the crumb topping has oats in it – not just butter and sugar. to give it some additional fiber, i threw in some flaxseed. i have it baking in the oven right now and am excited to have it for dessert tonight!

To make the peach filling: In a large bowl, stir together sugars, flour, cinnamon and salt. Add peaches and gently toss to coat. Mix together cornstarch slurry and lemon juice and stir into peaches to incorporate. Oil a 12 by 8-inch oval dish with margarine and add peach mixture.

To make the crumb topping: In a medium bowl, combine dry ingredients, add in margarine and combine with hands until crumbly.

Top peaches with half of the crumb topping. Place in oven and immediately reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes, then add remainder of the crumb topping. Reduce heat to 325 degrees F and bake until golden and bubbling, another 45 minutes. Remove from oven and let sit for 15 minutes before serving.
