The best way to serve this delicious betty is warm with a dollop of whipped cream. I hope that you will enjoy this summer treasure. To ensure maximum flavour use fresh, ripe fruit.

my family enjoyed this wonderful crisp, used 2 small peaches in place of nectarines, the fresh apricots really bring this to life, I rediced the salt to 1/8 teaspoon, thanks for sharing BK!

When I was a kid I loved to go out & pick a bit of rhubarb & eat it just like that! Then, as I got older I came to dislike the stuff! NOW, A LOT OLDER, I find that I'm liking it more & more, hence the making of this recipe! As I looked at it, I was tempted to change the proportions on the fruit (less rhubarb, more of the others), but then decided to do it up as given! I even managed to get all fresh fruit (thanks, I expect, to all the imported fruits we get down here)! Anyway, this all came together for an OUTSTANDING & tasty dessert! Very definitely a keeper! Thanks for sharing! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe cooking game]
