How do I know when my peaches are ripe and ready to eat?

The easiest way to tell is to cut open one and taste it, but there are different ways to tell if a peach is good for eating or baking. To tell if it’s good, squeeze the peach lightly. If the peach is soft, it is ready to eat. If the peach has just a little bit, you may want to give it a few extra days to ripen more. You may want to discard if skin is wrinkled or visibly bruised.

Can you eat the skin of a peach?

Yes, you can, even if it has a fuzzy texture. If you do choose to eat the skin, be sure to wash it well to remove any pesticides, dirt, and other contaminants that may be on the skin.

For this peach crisp recipe, I recommend you peel the peaches. During the roasting process, the skin will separate from the meat and will have an unpleasant texture if left on.

What is the difference between crisp and cobbler?

Shortbread is topped with a crumbly mixture, usually consisting of flour, cereal (such as oatmeal), butter, sugar, and sometimes nuts, while cobblers are topped with batter.

The toppings are my favorite part! Does this crisp have a lot of toppings?

Yes, as written, this recipe has enough ingredients to create a thick layer over the peaches in a 9×9 pan. There was enough crispy topping to cover a 9×13 peach pan with a thin layer.

Can I add nuts to potato chips?

Yes, you can. You can add up to 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, pecans or almonds to this recipe. When whisking oats, simply whisk them into the crumble mixture.

Can I use canned or frozen peaches for peach crisp?

Yes, you can. Your chips may have more liquid in them, so you’ll want to drain them if using canned. If using frozen, it is recommended that you thaw and drain the peaches before using.
