We buy peaches from The Peach Truck two times each summer. The peaches are FANTASTIC but my experience has been that the 2nd batch goes bad in a HURRY. All the peaches I had left from the 2nd batch were still firm but the skin was getting pretty funky on them. I decided to use them all to try making peach cobbler in the Instant Pot IP-DUO60 7-in-1 Multi-Functional Pressure Cooker, 6Qt/1000W . This is one of those dishes that I’m not sure the magic pot is the best tool, but I was willing to give it a shot! I got the recipe here .
- My trick to peeling peaches is to drop them into boiling water for about 30 seconds and then spoon them into a bowl of ice water for a bit. The peels just slip off then and you don’t lose any peach in the process.
- I followed the recipe for slicing the peaches and mixing them with the filling. Then I dumped them into the pot.
- I was a little confused by the instructions for the topping, so I just dropped it in spoonfuls over the top of the peaches. I sprinkled with the sugar cinnamon mixture.
- I closed the lid to the magic pot and set it to 10 minutes on manual.
- Remember to close the valve!
- Walked away and went back to work while the pot did its thing.
- Came back about half an hour later and the pressure had been released.
- Spooned some into a bowl and added a little ice cream!
- The taste is fabulous! The peaches were cooked but not limp and lifeless. I would have preferred the topping to be brown on top but it was cooked. I may stick the rest of it under the broiler for a minute to brown it. Overall–easy, peasy and didn’t take an hour plus to cook. And didn’t heat up my kitchen.
