Mom’s just know things.
Like the following:
- Peaches ripen quicker if put in a brown paper bag. This is good to know when you buy peaches the day before making peach crumble so they’d be freshest, but they’re not super ripe yet.
- If you’re making the sauce for on the ribs for dinner and you feel the need to thicken it with corn starch, you should take a measuring cup and remove some of the sauce and whisk in some cornstarch in the cup and not in the whole thing. This prevents clump-fest 2009.
- Room temp butter is a mere 10 seconds away, microwave style.
- Peach Crisp seems like it’d be known for having oatmeal in it.
- Peach Crumble is a name that better represents this dessert.
My parents are in town. They’re staying with me. So last night Jacob (the tall dark and handsome man in my life) made an elaborate feast, while I made this dessert!
My mom helped though. That’s her up there! Dolloping vanilla whipped cream like it’s her job!
