Nectarine and Strawberry Crunch

June 28, 2012

The summer heat is here and I sometimes think that all I can eat is chilled fruit.  Some combinations of different fruits are just better than others.  This is one of the greatest.  This simple crunch is so good you will make it many times with many different fruits and nuts.

Nectarine and Strawberry Crunch



  • 5 Nectarines (sliced thinly)
  • 1 C. Strawberries (quartered)
  • 1 1/2 C. Lt. Brown Sugar (lightly packed)
  • 1/4 C. All-Purpose Flour
  • 6 T. Cassis


  • 1 1/2 C. All-Purpose Flour
  • 3/4 C. Sugar
  • 3/4 C. Lt. Brown Sugar (lightly packed)
  • 1/2 t. Kosher Salt
  • 1 C. Rolled Oats
  • 1/2 C. Walnuts (chopped)
  • 1/2 lb. Unsalted Butter (cold and diced)


  1. Combine the nectarines, strawberries, brown sugar, flour and cassis; pour mixture into a 12″ x 8″ baking dish and set aside
  2. In a large bowl combine the flour, sugar, brown sugar, salt, oats, walnuts and butter; mix on low-speed until mixture is crumbly; cover the top of the nectarine and strawberry mixture
