Apple Blueberry Crisp

2 apples, peeled, cored and chopped
1 can of blueberries or 1 cup fresh blueberries
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup oats, rolled (raw)
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/3 cup butter

Put apples & blueberries in shell baking dish and sprinkle with lemon juice. Combine dry ingredients, add melted butter and mix until crumbly.

Do not sample the sugar/oats/cinnamon mixture. it is the most heavenly stuff in the world, and you’ll eat the whole thing, leaving nothing for the crisp. Resist.

Sprinkle crumb mixture over apples.

Bake at 375 F for 30 minutes or until apples are tender.

..I first tried this recipe in Britain, and there are many yummy variations. You can use apricots, peaches, pears, just about any fruit that you fancy. To make it properly English, top it off with Bird’s Custard.

If there’s no Bird’s available, Cool Whip or Whipped Cream are fine. If you want to be a total Yank, top it off with ice cream.

Makes six servings
