Hey everyone! Well, as I'm sure you've noticed it's been a while since my last blog post. Let me fill you in on whats been going on. Last Tuesday (August 28th) I got the call from my mom that said that my Grandpa Lloyd had passed. Most of you probably know from my recent posts that my Grandpa hasn't been doing well for a while. I would like to thank everyone, on behalf of my whole family, for all the thoughts and prayers. These last two months with him were truly a blessing.
Now that my week has finally calmed down some.. I do have an awesome recipe for you, of course. I'm surprised at myself that I haven't made something with cherries yet for you because I absolutely LOVE cherries. Hope you guys enjoy!
Preheat oven to 350
3-3 1/2 cups pitted and halfed fresh cherries
1/3 cup orange juice
1/3 cup spiced rum
3/4 tsp ground nutmeg
3 Tbl Agave or honey
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
Place all ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat. Let simmer, stirring occasionally, until reduced to half (about 10-13 minutes). Set asside.
1 stick unslated butter, at room temp
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup oats
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
In a mixing bowl, place the butter, brown sugar and flour. Using a fork , smash the butter into the flour and sugar. Add the oats, nutmeg and salt and continue to smash the butter with the fork until crumbles are formed. Place half the crumble in the bottom of a 9'' tart pan. (I used 2- 6'' tart dishes) Bake for 13-15 minutes, and remove from oven.
Pour your filling over the baked crumble. Top with the other half of the crumble you have set aside. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden, (rotate halfway through bake time). Excellent with vanilla ice cream. :)
