Old Fashioned Peach Crisp

Old Fashioned Peach Crisp at Miz Helen's Country Cottage
When I was a young girl I remember going to the orchard with my Grandmother to gather fresh peaches. I still remember the wonderful fresh smell of the peaches  as we would gather them into the basket. Then back in my Grandmothers kitchen she would make the most delicious peach crisp, oh my goodness the smell of that crisp. Then that first bite of crisp just out of the oven, my Granmother would pour a little fresh cream from the morning's milking onto the crisp. Thinking back on it now, it was a little piece of heaven. This is the recipe that has been passed down to me through the years and although it didn't come out of my Grandmothers wood burning stove, it is still a delicious recipe!
How To Make An
Old Fashioned Peach Crisp

I Like To Use A Hot Water Bath To Remove The Outside Skin
Just Drop The Peaches Into A Large Stew Pan With Enough Water
To Cover The Peaches, Let Them Boil For About A Minute or Two
Remove Each Peach and Place It Into A Large Bowl With
Ice Water and Let Set For About 1 Minute.
The Outside Skin Will Just Slip Right Off Leaving
A Very Clean Peach.
