Have some overripe fruit lying around? CHOW.com's Suzy Brannon has the answer: a vinegar shrub. To make your own old-timey treat, see our Peach Shrub recipe.
Easy Peach Crisp
For a no-fuss summer dessert, look no further than this easy peach crisp. Ripe slices of the fruit are tossed with brown sugar, lemon juice, vanilla, and cornstarch to help thicken the sweet peach juices, then topped with a streusel of flour, butter, oats, brown sugar, and cinnamon that gets nutty and crisp in the oven. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or fresh whipped cream for a perfect bite.
