It’s quick & easy to put together a fruit crisp when this mix is ready & waiting in the freezer or in the fridge! I have always loved fruit crisps, so simple but delicious, especially when the seasonal fruits become available. You can mix different fruits together, perhaps using strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries and in the winter, apples & dried cranberries. I like to soak the dried cranberries in rum for 30 minutes before using.
2 cups unbleached flour (or I use 1 cup each of unbleached & wholewheat flour)
2 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
1 1/3 cups packed brown sugar
1 Tbsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Place into a storage container in the fridge or freezer for up to 2 months. I generally put mine into the freezer, where it keeps much longer.
To Use Mix:
Combine 1 ¼ cups of mix with 1/3 cup melted butter. If you like, you can add ¼ cup chopped nuts or shredded coconut to the mixture. Spread over the top of the fruit and bake according to the recipe you are using.
