4 cups fresh or frozen blackberries or blueberries (I used fresh)
2 tsp. cornstarch
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup shredded dried coconut
1/2 cup chopped almonds (I used sliced almonds)
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
8 Tbs. (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
Preheat an oven to 325°F.
Peel, core and thinly slice the apples.(I didn't slice very thin because I am lazy. And I have a two year old. Look, you're lucky I baked at all. You're not, probably, because you didn't eat any. Someone is though.)
In a bowl, stir together the berries, apples, cornstarch and granulated sugar. Spread the fruit mixture in a baking dish that is 12 to 14 inches in diameter. (I used a rectangle.)
In a bowl, stir together the flour, brown sugar, oats, coconut, almonds, cinnamon and ginger. Drizzle with the melted butter and toss with a fork to combine. Sprinkle the crumble mixture evenly over the fruit. Bake until golden and crisp, 45 to 50 minutes. Serve warm. Serves 6 to 8.
