Summer crisp- Nectarine & Blueberry

 While away camping with my son’s boy scout troop on Block Island last week I made dinner for 20 adults.  I also made a killer nectarine, peach & blueberry crisp (gluten-free too).  It was done in a Dutch oven on a campfire.  I decided to make another one (without peaches) but added another element by mixing a little lemon curd with whipped cream.  Delicious.

I had a little rhubarb and some strawberry compote so I made mini strawberry rhubarb crisps at the same time. 

Recipe below.

Here’s my original crisp recipe:

This is how I made this latest one (smaller size):
Crumb topping:
1 cup oats
1/2 mixed gluten-free flours
1/2 tsp xantham gum
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white organic sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 stick butter cut into small pieces
dash of cinnamon
Fruit mix:
5-6 nectarines
1/2 quart of blueberries
Tbsp sugar
juice from 1/5-1/4 lemon

Topping: Mix all ingredients except butter together.  Using your fingers or knives, cut butter into mixture.  When butter is in pieces about pea sized or smaller and coated with flour/oats you can then pour over fruit in pan.  
Fruit: cut nectarines (or peaches) into small pieces (about 1/2-1 inch).  Toss gently with blueberries, lemon juice and sugar.  Pour into oven-proof pan (I use glass).  Top with Crumb mixture.  Bake at 375-400 for 10 minutes.  Continue to bake at 350F for 25 minutes or you see juices of fruit bubbling up. 
The whipped cream I used:  mix small container heavy cream, tsp sugar, 1/2 tsp vanilla and whip.  Gently fold 1 Tbsp lemon curd to 4 Tbsp cream.

  3. I believe you have just “made” Al’s summer! Of all the things he misses now that he can’t eat gluten, summer pies and fruits are right up there at the top of the list.
