Delaware Peach Crisp

Peach Mixture:
2 (29 oz) cans of peaches
1 cup brown sugar
2 T cornstarch
2 T honey
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t nutmeg
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup raisins (or dried cranberries)
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup melted butter
Optional (for some): Vanilla ice cream

Drain the peaches, keeping the liquid from one of the cans in a large saucepan. Set temperature to medium, and stir in the brown sugar, cornstarch, honey, cinnamon, and nutmeg. When the mixture is smooth, bring it to a boil and stir continually for 2 minutes (sauce will thicken). Add lemon juice, peaches, raisins, and pecans. Pour everything into a large baking dish.

Combine the flour, sugar, and butter, then sprinkle it over the peaches. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. Add the ice cream to the top before serving if you choose.
