Last summer I harvested a lot of raspberries from our backyard. On Saturday, I used the last of those precious berries, knowing that in a few short weeks I will have a robust supply of them once again. I make a delicious mixed berry crisp that make those berries the perfect addition.
Mixed Berry Fruit Crisp
8 cups berries ( I used a variety of raspberries, blueberries and strawberries)
1 cup sugar
2 tbsp corn starch
juice from one lemon
1 tsp lemon zest
1/2 cup flour
1 cup old fashioned oatmeal (not instant, steel cut or quick)
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup chilled butter
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Wash the berries and put in large bowl. Add sugar, corn starch, lemon juice and zest. Let sit. Put the flour, oatmeal and brown sugar in food processor and mix. Once mixed, add butter and mix. Put fruit in baking dish, sprinkle crumble on top. Bake until bubbly. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream.
