I love a nice warm from the oven crisp. Until this year, I had never tried it using pears. I don’t know why, because it tastes fabulous.
You will need a baking dish that holds 2 quarts. I usually use a round glass casserole, but you could use a 9″ square baking pan.
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit/190 Celsius
5 cups sliced and peeled pears
1/2 cup oats
1/4 cup oat flour(all purpose flour will also work)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ginger
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup butter
Peel and slice the pears and spread evenly in the baking dish.
In another bowl, combine the flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.
Cut in the butter until you get coarse crumbs.
Sprinkle the brown sugar mixture over the pears.
Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the pears are tender when pierced with a sharp knife.
I can’t believe it is Friday already.
I’ve been busy canning and freezing and time is just flying by.
I’ve spent a lot of years learning how to stretch a dollar.
I make everything from scratch.
I make stock from a turkey carcass.
We all have a different idea of frugality.
Some people clip coupons to save money.
I don’t use coupons much because I don’t use what I can find coupons for.
I would like to know what is frugal for you
or do you have any questions on how to be frugal with something.

Have a great Friday!
Sunday was a busy day.
There was plenty of picking going on.
My husband, daughter, and I went to my parent’s place to pick fruit.
My sister showed up to help too.
Dad has a apple tree with a bumper crop.
A couple pear trees and a couple peach trees too.
The peach are the small white Iowa peaches.
Here is some of what we brought home.
These are not everything either.
The fruit crisper drawer is full of apples and there is a cooler full in the garage.
I have a cooler full of pears that isn’t in this pictures.
There is also a huge box of peaches sitting in the back of the truck.
Too full for us to want to move until some of the peaches are gone.
Mom and Dad also have tons at home.
I did make butterscotch peach jam yesterday.
The pears aren’t ripe yet.
They don’t ripen til picked off the tree.
I am still doing tomatoes too.
One day I need to find time to cook my neck pumpkin.
This I got from a friend.
I’m going to be busy.
But, a good kind of busy.
