Sweet Georgia Peach Crumble
“This recipe is partly sponsored by the Georgia Peach Council. All views expressed are that of our own.”
When the warm weather hits, there is nothing like a sweet, juicy, Georgia Peach. I have always loved peaches, and found the variety from Georgia to be some of the best, if not the best! The sweet, fragrant scent, of a soft and ripe Georgia peach is totally hard to resist! I recently received a box from Pearson Farms in Georgia to help spark some creativity in the kitchen.
I figured it would use no more than 6 peaches so that would leave enough for my family to each savor a Georgia Peach for a snack.
After the peach crumble came out of the oven, my family all agreed that it was a great decision. Even though we are in the dead of summer, it was fairly cool enough to run the oven for no more than one hour. The result? A deliciously sticky sweet concoction of some of the juiciest peaches I have ever tasted, and the perfect balance of crumble.
I am trying to eat more wholesome so I tweaked some ingredients that I’d normally use in a crumble, and incorporated others like egg whites. I also used some organic whole wheat flour, and organic sugar.
I figure every small change will hopefully result in something good! The tweaks worked out perfectly because the dessert was awesome!
This Sweet Georgia Peach Crumble really would have gone so well with some ice cream but like I said, I am making some major lifestyle changes.
All I have to say, is thank you to the Georgia Peach farmers for taking care of some delicious harvests! Did you know that according to Will McGehee, “The vast majority of the peach harvest is picked, packed and shipped in the same day in an effort to give their peaches more time on the tree and less time until it gets to you.”
That was so apparent with our shipment—totally fresh!
Plus, at 60 calories, an average size peach is packed with fiber, A, C and E vitamins, potassium and zinc. The golden warm weather favorite is also fat, cholesterol, sodium, gluten and trans fat free making it not only an ideal snack, but also a featured ingredient in everything from beverages, to appetizers, main dishes and desserts like our crumble!
