Mia at Bright Morning Star is hosting this week’s Ina’s Garden theme, Sweet Baked Love, which can be interpreted many different ways so long as the recipe chosen is baked! For my submission, I chose Ina’s peach and raspberry crisp to represent my love for locally grown summer fruits.
This is my first year where I’m actively buying locally grown seasonal fruits and vegetables. In the past, I’d just walk aimlessly through the farmers market looking for strawberries regardless of whether they were in season and leave it at that. Now I know better! Plus, I love that this crisp is so “signature Ina” that even her Hamptons friends are shown making this dish on Ina’s show!
This recipe couldn’t be any easier or simpler. I even got the ingredients this morning, made the dish, and photographed it with time to write this post before work! For my version, I halved the recipe and was able to fit the entire mix in an 8×8 glass dish.
The result was so tasty! The delicious flavors of the soft baked fruit came bursting through while the topping provided a nice contrast texture-wise. It was so good that I ate it for breakfast!
I hope you can join us in Ina’s Garden this week and link up some Sweet Baked Love! If not, feel free to join us on August 4th when the theme will be Appetizing Appetizers and Snacks featuring Rosemary Roasted Cashews. If you need a reminder, you can always check the Ina’s Garden cooking group blog for the schedule!
