Mixed Berry Crisp

Summer brings on wonderful dishes and this is one of them.

Serves 8

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp each cinnamon and nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup melted butter

Sauce

  • 3/4 cup berry sugar
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 1 tsp grated orange rind

Filling

  • 1 1/2 cups blackberries
  • 1 cup sliced strawberries
  • 1 cup peeled and sliced peaches
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

 Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a bowl combine first five ingredients and press one half of the mixture in a greased nine inch cake pan.

To make the sauce, combine the sugar and cornstarch, whisk in the cold water and orange peel until smooth. Bring to a boil then reduce the heat to low and cook for five minutes or until thick and clear, whisking constantly.

Toss the fruit together and arrange over the base. Pour sauce on top and sprinkle with the remaining flour mixture and bake for fifty-five-sixty minutes until fruit is tender and top is golden in colour. Serve warm with sweetened whipped cream.

This is a nice take on the apple crisp recipes everyone has.
