Any suggestions on what to do with an excess of peaches? –Molly R.
How about turning them into a quick dessert? Spiced Peaches take less than 10 minutes to make.
Spiced Peaches – serves 2-4
2 large ripe but firm peaches1 tablespoon brown sugar1/4 teaspoon cinnamon1/8 teaspoon nutmeg2 teaspoons butter
Cook whole peaches in boiling water for 2 minutes. Cut in half, remove the stone and pull off and discard the skin. Put the peach halves in a broiling pan, cut side up.
Place an oven rack 4 inches from the broiling unit and begin preheating the broiler to high.
Combine the brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a small bowl and mix thoroughly. Fill each depression with the sugar mixture and then top with 1/2 teaspoon butter.
Place the broiling pan under the broiler and broil for about 2 minutes, or until the butter has melted and the peaches are hot. Serve immediately, 1 or 2 halves per person.See all Questions for Mom
