The Fruits of a New Season, Peach Ginger Crisp

Warm breezes are hinting at the bright sunshine to come. As we plant the seeds of spring and look forward to tomorrow’s summer gardens, what better way to enjoy the promise of the warm season than with a fabulous summer dessert? Here’s a favorite – Peach Ginger Crisp! Using fresh ingredients makes this recipe simply irresistible – sweet and juicy peaches marry beautifully with the pungent flavor of grated ginger (the heady aromas you’ll enjoy while preparing this dessert are testimony enough!) and the hardy crunch of sliced almonds, oats and brown sugar will have everyone coming back for more. Since this dish is inspired by the anticipation of fresh fruits from a summer orchard, it’s featured on our delicious Chelsea tablecloth in pale yellow with lots of coordinating Essential napkins for those lip-smacking moments!
