  • To make the topping, combine the oats, brown sugar and flour in a medium bowl. Using two knives or a pastry cutter, cut in the butter until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle topping on fruit mixture in baking pan. Top with pistachios

Notes

Smart Shopping Tips
  • Pistachios should have a slightly open shell. A closed shell indicates the nut is not yet mature.
  • A ripe peach will have a slight give to the flesh, but not be rock-hard or too soft. Under-ripe peaches can be stored on the counter until ripe. Once ripened, store in the refrigerator until ready to use.
 
Cooking & Serving Tips:
  • Use whole-wheat flour instead of all-purpose flour to add more fiber and nutrition.
  • To quickly peel stone fruit like peaches or nectarines: use a sharp knife and cut an “x” on the bottom of the fruit and spear with a fork. Submerge whole fruit in boiling water for about 30 seconds. Plunge into an ice bath for a few seconds. The peel should slip off easily.
  • When using frozen fruit, thaw in refrigerator overnight and drain well before using.
