You know how sometimes you just get tempted into buying big buys of fruit, and then it just sits on the counter?  I bought a big basket of organic Ontario peaches the other week, and then they just sat, and sat, and sat.  There was no way I wasn’t using them up, but at the same time I had no time to make much with them so I needed something easy.  And this peach crisp was so easy, I also made a potato salad at the same time!


I found the recipe a bit topping heavy, peach light.  The original recipe called for 1.25kg of peaches, and I had 1.15kg.  So yes, I used fewer peaches than requested.  Still, I would cut the topping by a  third, or increase the peaches by say another 3 peaches (I used 11 medium Ontario peaches so I’d use 14-15 in total).  In the recipe below I’ve asked for 14-15 peaches medium peaches.  If you are using those giant peaches you sometimes find in stores, you’ll have to eyeball it.

I served mine with whipped cream, but it would also be a treat with ice cream.
