Blueberry and Cherry Crumble

My husband and daughter made the humming sound as they ate this. Do you know what I mean? When you take every bit you uncontrollably make the mmmh sound. It is one of my fav. things to hear.
I served it straight from the oven with a big dollop of homemade whip cream. YUMMY.
I rant about fresh produce from the farmers market and this dessert and dinner is all fresh fruit and veggies from there. I love the farmers market. AND I REALLY LOVE HOMEMADE CHERRY AND BLUEBERRY CRUMBLE!!!!!!!




Yes! I am crazy! I pitted about 200 cherries and my fingers are still discolored. It was worth it.....But I am not sure if I will try to pit all the fresh cherries again.



I added 1/2cp of sugar to the already cut cherries and I would continually toss with each batch of freshly cut cherries.





Cherry and Blueberry Crumble
3cps. cherries
1 cps. blueberries
3 heaping TB of flour
1 1/4 cp sugar(If you already added 1/2 cp to the cut cherries add that to this amount of sugar)

1. Toss all of the above together and put in the bottom of a greased 9x13 pan.


THE CRUMBLE
1 1/2 cp. flour
1 1/2 cp. oatmeal
1cp. brown sugar
1/2 cp. sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 stick of cold butter
3/4 cp. of shortening
2. I threw all of this in the food processor and processed until about dime sized. I then put it right on top of the cherries. This makes a lot of crunch, but I love lots of crunch
Bake on 375 for about 40 minutes.

While it is cooking....whip up some homemade whip cream.
1 cp. of heavy cream
1/4 cp of sugar
Beat until it is thick....MAKE SURE you do not over beat it. It will turn into butter.


YUMMY....ENJOY

    Yes, that would be the angels singing. This looks mahvelous, and glory be! I just happen to have a big 'ol bag of cherries in my fridge! What a perfect summer recipe!!

    PS: Thanks for the email back! I'm sad the Farmer's Market is only open on Wednesdays~ I work at Rollins, which would make a trip to New Smyrna on a Wed. morn, a little hard to conquer :)
