I really like the idea behind southern hospitality. It’s a feeling I strive to give to all guests who enter my home. To do so is to show warmth to visitors, welcoming them into my house and feeding them with my food. I was reading Michael Pollan’s latest book and something he wrote stood out to me: “For is there any practice less selfish, any labor less alienated, any time less wasted, than preparing something delicious and nourishing for people you love?”
Well, this recipe is all about that. What says southern hospitality more than a warm stone fruit crisp (with PEACHES!) and some Mayfield Homemade Vanilla ice cream. Mayfield Dairy started their ice cream in 1923 with a family recipe and southern hospitality is their jam (<— see what I did there? Jam. Southern. Heh.) So what happened is this recipe is created and then the ice cream, being creamy and rich, grew in popularity and the brand became iconic for delivering these delicious ice cream flavors. Now here I am today, able to enjoy that same ice cream with a super summer recipe right out of the oven.
The thing about crisps is they are perfect for those who aren’t big fans of baking (me), but yet want a dessert. The ratio of all ingredients doesn’t have to be exact and everything will still come out great. For this crisp I chose the summer stone fruits because I love using seasonal ingredients and I happen to think the summer fruits are some of the best. Peaches, nectarines, plums and apricots make up this dessert with a nice mixture of nuts and sugar sprinkled on top.
Of course the crème de la crème here is the ice cream. The combination of the hot crisp with the ice cream is perfect. I’ve always enjoyed desserts more with ice cream on top and Mayfield is some of the best I’ve had. New at Walmart, I purchased the homemade vanilla flavor because it was so ideal for what I was making. I love that Mayfield Dairy uses fresh cream in their ice cream and that fresh cream comes right from their own dairy and bonus: has no artificial growth hormones. My family thanks you, Mayfield.
