Place your peaches in a large bowl. (**See below for an easy foolproof way to peel peaches.) Add the lemon zest, lemon juice, granulated sugar, and flour. Toss well.Gently mix in the blackberries and allow the mixture to sit for 5 minutes.
Spoon the mixture into a medium-size baking dish.To make your crumble topping, combine the flour, granulated sugar, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, and the butter in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Mix on low speed until the butter is about the size of peas. Or, you can use a pastry blender to incorporate the butter into the dry ingredients.
Sprinkle this mixture evenly over the top of your fruit.
Place the baking dish on a baking sheet lined with foil or parchment paper and bake for 40-45 minutes or until the top is browned and crisp and the fruit juices are bubbly.
Serve warm or at room temperature and top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream if desired.
**To easily peel your peaches, immerse them in boiling water for 1 minute. Then, remove and place them in a bowl of ice cold water to stop them from cooking. You should be able to just rub the skin off at this point.[nutrition-label]
