Nectarine Crisp


The basic on this is to make a topping from:

  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup whole oats
  • spices and nuts or dried fruit to taste (cinnamon, nutmeg, pecans, ginger, raisins for example)
  • a bit of melted butter

Mix butter into the dry ingrediants until it starts to form clusters (like granola). Lay it on a baking sheet and bake it for about 15 mins.

In a pot, put in 2/3 or your fresh slices of fruit and or berries. Add sugar, spices, butter, and vanilla to taste.  On the side, use fruit juice (1/2 cup apple or white grape or peach for example) mixed with cornstarch (about 1 – 2 tablespoons) to create your slip. Use more starch as needed to thicken to preference. I also like to add a bit of fresh squeezed lime.

Cooking the fruit and thickening it should take about 8 mins. Pour it into a baking dish and add the remaining fresh fruit. Then put the oat topping over the fruit and bake it until its hot and bubbly and the topping starts to brown.

Serve it with ice cream. I prefer Butter Pecan with this recipe.
