Just read a wonderful article on delectable Michigan peaches in The Detroit News, along with a simple recipe for Peach Berry Crisp using Michigan peaches and berries. You can also use blackberries or strawberries along with the peaches, or use nectarines in place of peaches.
From The Detroit News:
3 large peaches, peeled, pitted, chopped (about 3 cups)
2 cups blueberries
2 cups raspberries
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons plus 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup oatmeal (not instant)
1/2 cup (packed) light brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon cardamom
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
Vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter 8-inch square or oval baking dish. Toss fruit, sugar and 2 tablespoons flour in large bowl to combine. Transfer to prepared baking dish. Bake fruit until juices bubble, stirring occasionally, about 40 minutes. Bake without stirring another 5 minutes. Remove from oven. Increase oven temperature to 400 degrees.
Meanwhile, whisk remaining 3/4 cup flour, oats, sugar, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and salt in medium bowl to blend. Add butter and rub in with fingertips until small moist clumps form. Sprinkle topping evenly over hot fruit in dish.
Bake crisp until topping is golden brown, about 20 minutes. Cool slightly. Serve warm with ice cream. Serves 8.
