Getting Started

To Start

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees

What You'll Need

  • 1 1/2 cups of The Gourmet Farm Girl Cherry Balsamic
  • (reduced)
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup all purpose flour
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup chopped pecans
  • 6 tablespoons butter (divided)
  • 7-8 fresh medium size peaches sliced
  • (reserving 5-6 slices for garnish)
  • ½ cup granola cereal

Method

1

Simmer the balsamic in a sauce pan for 30-40 minutes; stirring often. Cook until it coats a spoon. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature; set aside. (Do not overheat)

2

Using a fork, mix in a medium size bowl the brown sugar, flour, rolled oats, cinnamon, pecans and 3 tablespoons butter till crumbly.

3

Spray a 9×9 glass casserole with cooking oil; pour half of the crumb mixture into the dish; drop the remaining 3 tablespoons of butter over the crumbs

4

Wash and peel peaches; slice and layer on top of the crumb mixture; cover with remaining crumbs and granola. Bake for 30-40 minutes; remove and garnish with fresh peach slices; return to oven for an additional five minutes. Remove and cool for 8-10 minutes; drizzle some of the Cherry reduction over the top before serving. Serve warm with vanilla ice-cream or fresh whipped cream and a sprig of fresh mint.

Note: Apples and Pears work well with this recipe.
Balsamic reduction also works well over grilled meats.
