Peach Crisp

Concasse peaches first. Make an X on bottom of the peach and then drop them into boiling water, about 6 at a time.  Let them stay in the boiling water for about 30 seconds to a minute.  Then place peaches into ice water until cool.  From there the skins should peel very easily.  Slice them, toss with brown sugar to coat and then with some Ap flour.  Cube up some butter to toss in.  Butter must be ice cold and very small cubes.  Fill square bowl then top with 4 to 5 blackberries, then top with strusel. Bake about 25 to 30 minutes at 350F.

Strusel recipe:

2 Cups Ap flour
2 1/4 Cups Brown Sugar
1 1/2 Cups Oats
9 oz cold butter
1 1/2 Tsp Salt
