Blackberry and Nectarine Crisp

40 weeks, one day and no baby!

So on to sweet things....

This is such a simple and quick dessert. Perfect for when you have company or just want to savor the flavors of the season. I keep picking blackberries in our yard and toss them into the freezer. When I have a couple of cups, I make something like this. 
Some of our other seasonal favorites are (spring) strawberries and rhubarb, (summer) blueberry and peach, (autumn) apple and raisin, (winter) any fruit I have thought ahead to freeze. 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Butter a pie dish
Cut 6 nectarines or any other stone fruit 
Add 1-2 cups blackberries or any other berry
(fruit should total approximately 6 cups)
Top with Crisp Topping:
1 cup oats
1/2 cup w/w flour
honey or agave or brown sugar to desired sweetness (We prefer very little)
1/2 stick butter (grated with a cheese grater)
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1 tsp cinnamon
dash of salt
Bake 30-40 minutes
