gooseberry crumble

Made with gooseberries bought at Hefk's Baltimore farmer's market this morning! I wasn't exactly sure what to do with them, but this non-recipe recipe (based on some weird old Gordon Ramsay recipe; is he British?) made it worthwhile to turn on the oven for the first time this summer.

A pound or so of gooseberries; I didn't have that many and augmented with elderly apricots and frozen blueberries

Enough sugar to make the fruit sweet, and it's more than you think you need, because those gooseberries are tart little guys

Old stale granola

A little more sugar

Cinnamon and nutmeg

Butter or Earth Balance or whatever

Preheat oven to 400 F.

In a saucepan, mix together fruit and sugar and stir on medium heat, until everything is saucy and delicious. Pour into a loaf pan.

In a bowl, mix together the granola, about another T of sugar, and the spices. Spread evenly over the top and dot with butter substance of your choice.

Bake for about 20 minutes or until fruit is bubbling and topping is brown. Serve with something creamy on top; I used Greek yogurt with some agave syrup.
