Summer Peach Crumble

To end the perfect meal for Create a Farmer's Market Feast we made a delicious peach cobbler with incredible yellow peaches from K&J Orchards. At the Farmer's Market, we met with Amboon, the warm and vivacious daughter of the farmers. She shared with us her knowledge of all the different types of peaches along with samples and explanations of how to use the variety of peaches. We learned that it is a bad idea to cook with white peaches as they turn too mushy and lose their peachy taste. The best peaches for cobblers and crumbles are yellow ones. Here is a picture of Amboon telling us about her wonderful peaches!
I served this peach crumble with a delicious coconut milk green tea ice cream. It was a beautiful contrast in flavor and texture.

2.5 pounds yellow peaches, cut into wedges
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup cane sugar
1/2 cup chopped almonds
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 stick butter, chopped
Lemon juice

1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Place the peach wedges in a glass baking dish.
2. Sprinkle the peaches with cinnamon and lemon juice. Gently toss to just coat.
3. In a bowl combine the flour, sugar, almonds, oats, salt and butter to get a nice even crumble topping mixture.
4. Place the topping on the peaches, sprinkle with some more cinnamon. Bake for 25 minutes.
