Servings 4 Jars


For the Filling

  • 4 large peaches
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 TB. minute tapioca
  • dash salt

For the Topping

  • ¼ cup butter
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup flour (or flour alternative)
  • ¼ tsp. cinnamon
  • ¾ cup quick rolled oats
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts or pecans


For the Filling

  1. Fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil . In a large bowl in your sink, prepare an ice bath. Quickly immerse the peaches in the boiling water and transfer to the ice bath. Peel the skins off the peaches and cut into ¼" thick slices.
  2. In a bowl, combine the peaches, sugar, cinnamon, tapioca and salt. Spoon equal amounts of the mixture into four 15 oz. jars (I used Canadian Gem jars).

For the Topping

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Mix the butter, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, oats, and walnuts until you’re left with crumbs and small chunks of topping. Loosely spoon over top of peach filling in the jars.

  2. Place the jars on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 18-20 minutes. Next, rotate the baking sheet, turn the heat down to 350 degrees, and bake for approximately 5 more minutes. The filling should be bubbling vigorously and the topping should be golden brown.
  3. Allow the jars to cool down and serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt.
