Now, one might associate a certain other state with that sweet, juicy summer fruit, the peach, but Delaware has put it in the number one spot: the state’s official fruit. The peach came to Delaware in colonial times, and for most of the 19th century it was the leading producer of peaches. Six million baskets went to market in 1875, and every peach was grown in Delaware.
That little history lesson might have made you hungry for some peach pie…perhaps with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
Create this mouthwatering peach crisp using fresh peaches when in season, or canned peaches, if you prefer.
Serves about 6
Goes great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream!
Drain the peaches, and use the syrup (or a portion of the syrup) in the filling, along with the other filling ingredients.
Additional ingredients you might want to toss in: Raisins and pecans.
