Love and Confections: Nectarine, Plum and Blueberry Crisp

Nectarine, Plum and Blueberry Crisp

These are the perfect crisps for fresh fruit from the farmer's market.


I love going to the farmer's market on the weekend. It has locally-grown produce, baked goods, fresh kettle corn and other vendors selling jewelry, homemade soaps, and even plants and flowers.


It is located right next to a water park that is a great spot for kids and toddlers to run around and play on hot Summer days. There is a little old couple that sells freshly squeezed lemonade and it is amazing. They squeeze the lemons right in front of you, pour it over ice, add in simple syrup and a cherry on top - perfection!




This crisp is great to throw together with whatever fruit you may have on hand. I love stone fruit, and it is also great with apples and spices. I used some fresh nectarines and plums, and had my frozen blueberries ready and waiting.

    1. I love summer fruits, Carol, and when they are just over-ripe, they are perfect for a cobbler or crisp.
