eruthros: closeup on apples, text "fruit porn" (fruit porn - apples)
[personal profile] eruthros
We had a bunch of peaches left over from an eight-quart container that we bought a couple of weeks ago when it was suddenly the last week for peaches. (Me: No, I'm fine, we've got other fruit now. Farmer: This is probably our last week for yellow peaches. Me: What! No! It can't be! Okay, fine, I'll take eight quarts.) They've since gone into several pies (peach and peach-blackberry) plus some extras for eating out of hand or in yogurt or whatever. But they were clearly getting a bit old, and some of the apples were wrinkly, so: peach-apple crisp. The peach-apple part is very tasty, but the crisp part is great, so I wanted to write it down so I'd have it again next time.

I hate finding recipes like this on the internet, and yet I'm about to do it to y'all, because I basically just used all of the fruit we needed to use up. My ballpark is that for a crisp, the fruit should be at least an inch deep in the pan, and. I always just keep slicing fruit directly into the pan until there seems to be enough or I run out of fruit or both. This time it was about 2/3 peaches, 1/3 apples (discovery, akane, and jonamacs), sliced fairly thinly, filling the 9x13 pan to about a half an inch from the top. I didn't skin them because I don't care about skins and I'm lazy.

Toss between 1/4 and 1/2 of a cup of sugar into the fruit, and shake some cinnamon in. (I used closer to 1/2 a cup, because some of the peaches were under-ripe and all three of those apples are tart varieties. YMMV.)

1.5 cups brown sugar (packed)
1.5 cups whole wheat pastry flour (or whatever other flour)
1.5 cups rolled oats
.25 ts baking soda
.25 ts baking powder
some cinnamon to taste

1 stick + 2 or 3 TB of butter, softened

Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl until well blended. Mix the butter into the dry ingredients until it's crumbly; it's easiest if you use your hands. Top the fruit with an even layer of crisp topping.

Cook about 45 minutes at 350 degrees, or longer if it feels necessary - I poke at some of the fruit when I take the pan out to see if it's softened enough, because I hate an underdone crisp.

Let it cool at least twenty minutes so the liquid isn't boiling anymore, and then eat topped with vanilla ice cream while watching a charming gay detective film.

Which is to say, we just watched the fourth Donald Stratchey movie ("Ice Blue") and it was charming and the characters were adorable and I loved Tim and Donald together and there were a lot of hugs. (But also some fairly standard tv-styles violence and discussion of child pornography, fyi.)
