Peaches are the epitome of summer in the south. About twenty miles north of our home is the peach capital of Alabama. There are several local peach farms that sell these juicy ripe peaches to peach markets located right by US I-65 in between Montgomery and Birmingham. Travelers must stop by and try their fabulously perfected peach ice cream. I love to devour peaches right off the tree from our yard, but as a special easy treat for the family, I love to make this recipe. The crunch and flavor of the almonds play perfectly with this decadent fruit!
Peaches are rich in vitamin A, beta-carotene as well as potassium, fluoride, and iron. Peaches actually prevent tooth decay.
4 tablespoons butter
4 peaches halved, cored, and skinned
8 tablespoons skinned almonds
8 tablespoons honey
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place butter in bottom of casserole and melt butter.
Place peaches core-side up in baking dish.
In a small bowl, combine almonds and honey. Divide the honey mixture among the peaches. Bake in oven for 25 minutes or until peaches pierce easily with a knife. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream.
