Our favorite tips for spring and summer peach harvest

When it is spring and the fresh peaches are on in the market or on the tree you should find the best crop to use fresh, prep for freezing, and bake some for this recipe as well.

Ingredients

  • 1⁄4 cup old fashioned oats or 1⁄4 cup quick oats
  • 1⁄3 cup water
  • 1⁄4 cup sliced peaches in juice, canned (this works out to about 5 slices of peach and about 1/8 cup of juice)
  • 1⁄8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1⁄8 teaspoon butterscotch extract or 1⁄8 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon Splenda sugar substitute (optional) or 1⁄2 teaspoon sugar (optional) or 1⁄2 teaspoon honey (optional)

Directions

  1. Cut up peach slices into small pieces.

  2. In a bowl add oats, water, and peaches with juice.

  3. Microwave in 500watt microwave for 2 minutes, stir, microwave for another 2 minutes, stir, then microwave in 1 minute intervals until cooked. In a 1200watt microwave, microwave for 30 seconds, stir, microwave for another 30 seconds, stir, and then continue microwaving in 30 second intervals until cooked.

  4. Once cooked, add cinnamon, butterscotch extract, and sweetener.NOTE: This serving seems small since it is only 1/4 cup of oats, but with the addition of peaches, it is quite filling, especially when served with a glass of milk; Feel free however, to increase one serving size to double this amount for a very hearty breakfast.
