Peach-Blueberry Crisp

Peach-Blueberry Crisp
Originally uploaded by snarkmeister.
I was having some serious fruit cravings when I visited the produce stands in nearby Brentwood yesterday. Both my dinner and dessert heavily featured fruit.

This is an adaptation of Barefoot Contessa's apple crisp recipe. I cut the recipe in half, and I substituted fresh peaches and frozen blueberries for the apples. I also didn't happen to have any lemons or oranges on hand, but I did have some organic strawberry lemonade, which is pretty tart, so I added a bit of that in place of the citrus juice and zest. It turned out beautifully, even if the peaches were a bit underripe (and boy, does that make it difficult to skin them!).

This is also my submission to Sweetnicks' ARF/5-a-day roundup this week.

How did you do the peaches/blueberries substitution for the apples? -- What ratios did you use?

Snarkmeister said...'s been a while...If I remember correctly it was about 2/3 peaches to 1/3 blueberries. The strawberry lemonade I just splashed in - maybe 1/4 cup. It's not a recipe that you have to be really super-precise with, unlike when you're baking anything that needs to rise.
