This week I'm digging out an old recipe we made last September. It got lost along with the Feta Stuffed Chicken recipe, but I was able to find this one pretty easily.
2 lbs of pears, sliced/diced
1/3 c. maple syrup
1 tbs. lemon juice
2 tbs. grated ginger
pinch of salt
1/2 c. oats
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. flour
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. Kosher salt
6 tbs. unsalted butter, melted
These pears came off my mother's pear trees on the farm. There are two kinds of trees next to each other, what looks like an Asian pear and a simple Bosc pear. They must have cross-pollinated because they have physical and taste aspects of both varieties.
Preheat oven to 350º.
Butter a baking dish
1. Combine pears, lemon juice, maple syrup, grated ginger and pinch of salt. Set aside.
2. Mix oats, brown sugar, flour, spices and Kosher salt. Slowly drizzle in butter, stirring with a fork until mix is crumbly. Break up larger crumbs.
2a. Totally optional step: I had a lot of fresh ginger juice after grating the ginger root. So, being the ginger junkie that I am, I mixed it with enough brown sugar to make a thick syrup and poured it over the pears in the baking dish.
3. Spoon fruit into baking dish. Sprinkle crumble on top. Bake until fruit is bubbling and topping is golden brown, about 50 minutes.
This is delicious with a simple vanilla ice cream on top,
with a ginger syrup poured over the whole thing.
