Welcome to the fourth installment of Tuesday's Kitchen Tip! Today, we're slicing up some peaches.
Since I can't slice and take photos I asked my husband to help me out. However, most of them turned out like the one above. :)
Still not quite what I had in mind...
Ah, better. Now you can see what I'm doing. :)
Okay, so slice into your peach and cut 1/2" sections all the way around.
And just pull it right off.
Repeat all the way around and you'll end up with perfect peach slices without making a mess all over your cutting board!
Btw, I cut about three peaches up this way and then poured a dry yellow cake mix over the top. Before putting it in the oven, I added 1/2 cup butter (cut into 12 slices) across the top. Bake at 350 until golden and you've got a fantastic cobbler...or what some people call a "dump cake." I'm sad I didn't take a photo of it because it was seriously the best "dump cake" I've ever had - and I've made quite a few! Even my darling husband, who generally dislikes peaches, ate every tiny smidge in his bowl.
And then my two brothers-in-law fought over who got to take the leftover dessert home. Which made me happy. :)
