Recipe tips for perfect results:
- Determine the type of peaches you will use:
- Fresh: Select ripe peaches that are fragrant and slightly soft to the touch but still firm. Cling-free will allow the fruit to easily separate from the pit. If the skin doesn't easily peel away when scored, peel with a knife or peeler. Alternatively, blanch in boiling water and then transfer to ice bath so the skin will easily peel.
- Canned: Low sugar canned peaches recommended. Drain prior to using.
- Frozen: Place in baking dish and allow to fully thaw before adding topping and baking.
- Peach cobbler variations: Make peach blueberry cobbler by adding a few handfuls of blueberries. Blackberries or raspberries taste great with peach too. If you have a vanilla bean, scrape out the seeds and mix them in with the peaches. A splash of vanilla or lemon zest in the crumb topping always tastes great.
- Storage: Any leftovers can be stored in an air tight container in the refrigerator.
- Serving suggestions: Serve warm or cold. Also tastes great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.
