Summer is crumble season with fruits at the peak of deliciousness. For a single-berry crumble, use 8 cups of the berry of your choice.

Yield:
Serves 6 to 8
Level:
None

Ingredients

For the filling:
  • 2 cups raspberries, rinsed and thoroughly drained
  • 2 cups blueberries, rinsed and thoroughly drained
  • 2 cups blackberries, rinsed and thoroughly drained
  • 2 cups strawberries, rinsed, hulled and quartered
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup granulated sugar, depending on tartness of berries
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 3 tablespoons Minute Tapioca (flour or cornstarch can be substituted, but I prefer tapioca)
  • Pinch of kosher salt
For the crumb topping:
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (not instant)
  • 1 1/4 cups firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter, slightly softened and cut into small cubes

Directions

To make the filling, gently toss the berries, sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, tapioca and a pinch of salt together in a large bowl. Mix very gently to avoid bruising. 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.
