Plant City Strawberries: vintagely sweet

Friday, January 24, 2014
It's a Florida tradition. Do whatever you want with ripe strawberries but make sure you eat them. Delicious!

There is something good and right about ripe strawberries. And something vintagely sweet. I like that term- 
"vintagely sweet." 

I have made this about twice or maybe 3 times since the strawberries have been ripe. It is so, so, so good. I did it once with ice cream and once with homemade whipped cream. Ok, so I have made it twice apparently. 

You can use a mix of berries but I have stuck with my native strawberries. It tastes like warm homemade strawberry jelly with crunchy yummies on top and its super easy to make it. Really. 

I got the idea/recipe from Food Network's Jaime Deen. Enjoy!

Total Time:
1 hr 15 min
15 min
30 min
30 min


Nonstick cooking spray
2 pounds fresh mixed berries (such as blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and strawberries. Hull and slice into quarters if using strawberries.)
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped shelled roasted and salted pistachios
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
6 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
Good vanilla ice cream or whipped cream

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 1 1/2-quart square baking dish (8- by 8-inch) with nonstick spray.

For the filling: Combine the berries, granulated sugar, flour, lemon juice and vanilla into a bowl and mix well. Add to the prepared baking dish.

For the topping: Add the oats, brown sugar, pistachios, flour and butter in a medium bowl and mix all together with your hands. Sprinkle the mixture evenly all over the berries and pop in the oven and bake until the berries are soft, the filling is bubbling and the crisp topping is lightly golden, about 30 minutes. Let cool for 30 minutes so the filling can thicken up. Serve with a big ol' scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream on top.
