Yesterday, I suddenly remembered that I had an event to attend in the evening. I had several other things to do before I went, so I wouldn't have time to make what I had planned for dinner. I had some peaches thawing in the refrigerator that I had bought at a farmers market last summer, chopped and frozen for a future peach cobbler. I discovered that I had also frozen a batch of the crumbly topping for the cobbler. I mixed up the cobbler in about five minutes and put it in the dehydrator to warm while I did other things.
It made a wonderful dinner! I highly recommend stocking up on summer fruit for your freezer if you get the chance!
Raw Peach Cobbler
8 medium peaches, pitted
12 medjool dates, pitted
1 tsp. cinnamon
Peel & chop 4 peaches into bite-sized chunks and set aside. Save the skins to add to the filling. Put the dates, cinnamon and 4 remaining peaches into a high-speed blender (Vita-mix, Blendtec) and blend well. Pour into a baking dish (9x13 or smaller) and stir in chopped peaches.
1 1/4 c. raw nuts
3 or 4 medjool dates, pitted
1/8 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Process all except dates in food processor until crumbly. Add dates again & process until well broken up. Sprinkle on top of the cobbler filling.
This can be eaten right away or warmed for an hour in a dehydrator set at 130 F.
Freezing the chopped peaches beforehand makes them softer and it will be closer to a cooked peach texture. I like it either way. :)
