*It is almost peach season. To set the mood here is a very easy and delicious (light too) peach crumble pie recipe. If you have a few quarts in the freezer from last year then you are a peach lover.
2 pounds fresh ripe peaches peeled, pitted and cut into one inch chunks
¾ cup apricot jam, warmed
¼ plus 2 tablespoons cup sugar
1 ¼ cups all purpose flour
2 tablespoons orange juice
1/3 cup light brown sugar
¼ teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons cold butter sliced
½ cup oats
½ cup sliced almonds
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Combine the peaches, apricot jam, 2 tablespoons sugar, ¼ cup flour and orange juice in a large bowl and toss then pour into a 9X12 baking dish.
For the topping combine 1 cup flour, ¼ cup sugar, 1/3 cup sugar brown sugar and the salt in a food processor and pulse several times.
Next add in the butter and pulse until the mixture is incorporated.
Transfer the mixture to a bowl and add in the oats and almonds then stir to combine.
Spread the topping over the plum mixture and bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes or until fruit is tender.
Hint-This is not bad with a little ice cream!
