Peach Rhubarb Crisp Recipe

Peach Rhubarb Crisp Recipe

When a visit to the local farmers market left me with an abundance of quickly ripening peaches and a few stalks of rhubarb, I created this sweet-tart recipe. —Sandy Kimble, Salinas, California
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 30 min. YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups sliced fresh or frozen rhubarb
  • 2-1/2 cups chopped peeled fresh peaches or frozen unsweetened sliced peaches, thawed and chopped
  • TOPPING:
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons cold butter

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the sugar, flour, nutmeg, lemon peel, salt, rhubarb and peaches. Transfer to a greased 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish.
  • 2. In a small bowl, combine the flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs; sprinkle over fruit. Bake at 375° for 30-35 minutes or until bubbly and fruit is tender. Serve warm or cold. Yield: 6-8 servings.
Editor's Note: If using frozen rhubarb, measure rhubarb while still frozen, then thaw completely. Drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out.
