Gastropost: Just Peachy - Summer crumble

 We are super lucky this summer since peach season has started early. Thanks to our super hot & sticky summer no doubt a direct cause of global warming. At least it's good for something - yes I'm looking on the bright and sarcastic side of things. This local array of fruit makes a delightful summer crumble which is easy as pie to make... well easier cause it's crumble - pies reliable & modest cousin. One of my all time favorite desserts that really needs no measuring, just love and a scoop of ice cream doesn't hurt either.

peaches - rough chopped 
blueberries - whole 
yellow plums - rough chopped
honey or sugar or maple syrup for sweetening 
cardamom - a pinch 
cinnamon - a pinch 
salt - a pinch 
butter - handful chopped
flour - a few spoonfuls 
oats - a few handfuls 
love - as much as you can part with 

PREP: Pre heat oven to 350. 
FILLING: Chop fruits adding a few spoonfuls of something sweet to the fruit mixture, 2 spoonfuls of flour, pinch cardamom. Mix well.
TOPPING: Combine chopped butter, cinnamon, spoonful of flour, handful of oats & some more something sweet (few spoonfuls of honey is nice)
BAKE: Spread topping over filling and bake for 45 mins. 
SERVE: Warm with vanilla ice cream

  3. oh la la.. that looks tempting! a Lot of fruits and blueberries! I love it so much!

  4. I can't help but purchase more and more peaches each time I stop at our nearby produce stand. Your crumble sounds like a quick and delicious that combo of fruits!
