Mango-Strawberry Crumble

Summer is crumble season with fruits at the peak of deliciousness, yet I persist in making the same old classic crumbles: apple, or peach and blueberry. This summer I broke out of my crumble rut and embarked on an epic bake-off, testing dozens of fruits and fruit combinations. In the process, I discovered some surprising new crumble loves, along with the realization that just about any jumble of fruits wrapped in a crumble topping is a winner.

    Directions

    Mixing gently to avoid bruising, combine the mango, strawberries, sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, tapioca and a pinch of salt together in a large bowl. Spoon the filling into a 9-inch deep-dish pie pan.

    To make the crumb topping, stir together the flour, oats, dark brown sugar, cinnamon and salt in a medium bowl. Blend in butter with your fingertips, fork, or pastry blender until mixture forms pea-size clumps.

    Spoon topping evenly over fruit filling and bake on a middle rack in a preheated 375 degree F oven until fruit is bubbling and the top is nicely browned, about 60 minutes. Let the crumble cool for about 10 minutes before serving.

      My first time making any type of crumble. It was very good and very easy to make. I do agree with the previous reviewer about the crumble topping. It was way too much. I didn't add all of it. It seems like a waste. Flavor was very good. The combination of tart fruit and sweet topping was very good. I must try this recipe with different kinds of fruit.

      I really liked the combination of the strawberries and mango. However, there is way too much crumb topping. If I were to make it again I would cut the quantities in half for the topping. There was so much topping you barely noticed (or could find the fruit). I added some walnuts to the topping which we liked.
