Ginger Pear Crisp

Ginger Pear Crisp

So, my favorite grocery store, Earthfare, had 5 lbs of pears for $1. $1? Yes, please. I didn’t know what the heck I was going to do with 5 lbs of pears, but I got them anyway. I got home and found a recipe, which I changed up a bit. Because I march to a beat of a different drum, remember?

4 medium-sized pears, cubed (I didn’t peel them, but you can if you like)

2 tablespoons honey

2 teaspoons fresh ginger, peeled and diced

1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup quick cooking oats

1/4 cup brown suger

1/2 cup butter (a little softened)

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease an 8 inch baking dish.

2. Mix the pears, ginger, honey and lemon juice in the prepared dish.

3. In a bowl, mix flour, oats, brown sugar and butter to the consistency of coarse crumbs. This is why you want to soften the butter a little. It’s easier to mix. But don’t melt it, it won’t be the right consistency. Sprinkle loosely over the pear mixture

4. Bake 45 minutes in the preheated over or until brown and crisp on top.

If you like ginger, this is for you. If you don’t like ginger, leave it out. I had this for breakfast covered with a little honey flavored greek yogurt. Good Stuff.

A little tip about ginger. You can buy a good size chunk of this in the produce department of almost any supermarket. You can freeze what you don’t use. And leave it out for a few minutes when you are ready to use it again.
