I can hardly drive past an enticing roadside stand with fresh peaches, corn on the cob and bright red tomatoes glistening in the sunshine without stopping. Continue reading “Super Simple Streusal-Topped Blueberry Peach Pie”
The familiar taste of a ripe, sweet Georgia peach is the ultimate flavor of summertime. Nothing beats biting into the fuzzy, soft fruit and hearing the sound of the peel break, while the juices run down your chin. Continue reading “Recipe Round-Up: Four Fresh Ways to Enjoy Sweet Georgia Peaches”
Summertime may be my absolute favorite time to visit the farmers’ market and fruit may be my absolute favorite thing to purchase. On Saturday morning, I scored a large package of plump blackberries and the season’s first Georgia peaches. You can imagine my excitement when I came across a delicious recipe for Peach-Berry Crumble in the latest edition of Southern Living. Sunday afternoon just got better.
I paid $5 for this huge container of blackberries. You can’t beat that! Well worth the money, especially knowing I’m supporting the local farming community. Thanks Ricardo from Poor Robin’s Produce! The peaches came from my friends at Jacob’s Produce. I snuck a few pieces while slicing them for the crumble. Irresistible, juicy and sweet.
Crumbles make the perfect summer dessert. Simple to throw together, they’re special enough for entertaining yet quick enough for a post-dinner weeknight treat.
I substituted 1/2 cup of uncooked regular oats with Honey Bunches of Oats with Vanilla. It’s what I had on hand and it got the job done! Assembling this dessert is so much fun because it’s rustic and hands-on. Butter makes everything better.
The end result is a crunchy, buttery topping filled with warm, sweet fruit. Serve with cold vanilla ice cream or sweetened whipped cream. Garnish with fresh mint. Savor summertime!
Prep Time: 1 Hour, 20 Minutes
- 3 cups fresh peach slices (about 3 medium)
- 2 cups fresh blackberries

2014 is off to a great start! Tune in to The Dr. Oz Show this Monday, Jan. 27 at 4 p.m. on WSAV-3 Savannah to watch my video segment during Dr. Oz’s Healthy Recipe Challenge. I was asked to submit a healthy recipe to represent my home state, featuring Georgia peaches. Three finalists were chosen to appear on the show to have Dr. Oz taste their dessert. Though I wasn’t chosen as one of the top three finalists, the video I submitted will appear in a segment! Be sure to check your local listings for the time the program airs in your area.
I submitted my Grilled Georgia Peaches with Toasted Granola and Honey. If you’ve never tasted grilled peaches, start living. Something about grilling fruit makes it that much more desirable, and Georgia peaches really shine in this lightened up dessert. While we all know there’s no real substitute for one of Georgia’s best Southern recipes–good ol’ peach cobbler, this dish satisfies your sweet tooth without packing on the pounds. The great thing is, when fresh peaches aren’t in season, you can substitute frozen ones. The peaches may also be grilled outside or on an indoor grill pan. Not an ice cream fan? Forgo it and serve it with fresh, sweetened whipped cream instead.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 2 Large Georgia Peaches, peeled and cut in half, or 1 bag of frozen, sliced peaches
- 1/2 – 1 cup of granola, toasted
- Kosher Salt
- 1-2 Tablespoons of local B&G Tupelo Honey
- Low-fat Vanilla Yogurt or Fat Free Ice Cream
- Butter or Light Non-Stick Cooking Spray
To grill a fresh peach, slice it right down the middle, remove the pit, brush the halves with melted butter and season with kosher salt. Allow the peach to grill skin side up for about 3-4 minutes. Meanwhile, toast granola in a saucepan over medium heat, about five minutes, stirring slightly, until golden brown and fragrant. Place 1-2 scoops of cold ice cream in a bowl. Top with grilled peaches. Sprinkle with granola and drizzle with honey.
