I always, well, almost always, serve a fruit crisp on Sunday night dinner.
The crisp is always different depending on my mood and the available fruit.
This apple crisp was made with a macoun apple which I’d purchased while driving in the magnificent Kootenays region in beautiful British Columbia. It’s an area filled with rich soil and super sunshine producing fantastic fruit for the province.
I’ve never had a macoun apple and was pleasantly surprised by it’s taste. It’s a cross between a macintosh and a jersey black apple. It was excellent in this apple crisp!
1 cup large rolled oats
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup soft butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Cut up enough apples to fill a11x7x2 inch baking pan. It will depend on the size of the apple how many you use.
I like to use an apple that softens when baked and I recommend the spartan or the macintosh apples. If you feel the macintosh apple is sour, feel free to mix in one tablespoon of white sugar.
In a medium-size bowl combine rolled oats, brown sugar, and salt. With your fingertips rub in the soft butter until it’s combined. Sprinkle mixture on top of the fruit and cook for 45 minutes.
Serve plain, with vanilla ice cream or whipping cream.
