Peaches are in season right now big time and the other day as I was driving around town running errands I noticed that there was a roadside stand for fresh peaches from Colorado. I had to stop.
We used to have a peach tree in our backyard when I was growing up in California and I love fresh peaches. And one of my favorite desserts is peach crisp and I wanted to make some for our 4th of July BBQ yesterday but it was a busy day for us full of fun free activities that our city does plus it was just too darn hot to fire up the oven. So of course, crock-pot to the rescue. You can make this recipe without heating up the entire house during the summer. Because who the heck wants to do that!
I am sure you can modify this recipe to your hearts content too and use other seasonal produce. In fact I really want to do a cherry crisp but alas have had a hard time finding sour pie cherries in the grocery stores…maybe I will find some soon at a local roadside produce stand…we shall see!
