Nectarine Blackberry Crisp

I made this crisp for shabbat this week and it turned out really well. We have a lot of nectarines and blackberries seem intent on taking over the world as we know it, so I thought this was good use of both. 🙂 And tapioca granules are the thickener in this. You don’t usually see that often, but it works very well, especially when blackberries are present, because they soak up the juice and actually look sort of like blackberry sections while thickening the filling.

So, anyway. Here’s the recipe:

Nectarine Blackberry Crisp

Filling:

8 small nectarines, pitted and cut into ¼ inch wedges

2 cups blackberries, washed carefully

½ cup sugar, or to taste

1 Tbsp. plus 1 tsp. tapioca

1 Tbsp. lemon juice

 

Heat oven to 350*F. Mix together all the filling ingredients in a bowl. Transfer to 1 ½ quart shallow baking dish.

This is two pans in the picture because I did this recipe double and got a lot more filling that I expected.

 

Crisp Topping:

½ cup flour

½ cup almond flour/meal

¼ cup white sugar

¼ cup brown sugar

1 tsp. salt

¼- ½ tsp. cinnamon

¼ tsp. nutmeg

1/8 tsp. ground cloves

 

Cut in 1 cube butter. (I usually just work it in with my hands until it’s crumbly.)

Add ¾ cup old-fashioned rolled oats.

 

Crumble on top of the filling. Bake for 30-45 min. or until golden-brown on top.

Artsy sort of fade-out. The other picture is more accurate as to what the crisp looks like.

 

Please comment and tell me what you think! 🙂

  1. hey “writefury” i know you like to write and you made some poems so i though you mite like this one it one of my favs.
    “Broken Dreams”
    As children bring their broken toys
    With tears for us to mend.
    I brought my broken dreams to God
    Because He was my Friend.
    But then instead of leaving Him
    In peace to work alone,
    I hung around and tried to help
    With ways that were my own.
    At last i snatched them back and cried,
    “How could You be so slow”-
    “My child,” He said,
    “What could i do? You never did let go.”

Any thoughts?
