Strawberry Crisp Recipe with Oatmeal

This wonderful recipe is great whatever the season. In the summer, you can serve it chilled with crème fraiche. In the fall or winter, try it hot with ice cream or whipped cream. Strawberry rhubarb crisp is a popular recipe and if you are familiar with strawberry rhubarb crumble, you might want to make this recipe. The combination of soft, sweet fruit and the crunchy oatmeal and flour-based topping is great and adding some cream or ice cream to the cooked dessert makes it extra good and finishes it off perfectly. This is a great family dessert but you can also make it for a dinner party; it is definitely impressive enough and everyone loves home-baked dessert recipes.

You can add some rhubarb if you like, or just use the strawberries. Loganberries, redcurrants, and raspberries are also good. You will find that the balsamic vinegar, which is dark, rich, sour and sweet at the same time, brings out the flavor of the strawberries really well, in case you were wondering why that was an ingredient. The gelatin powder fortifies the strawberry taste and it is used in this recipe to lend extra flavor rather than to change the consistency of the strawberry crumble.

You can make this strawberry crumble recipe in individual ramekins or in one big pot. It makes little difference but if you are serving them for a dinner party, making them in attractive individual containers might be nicer in terms of presentation. As you can imagine, this is one of the most delicious smelling gelatin recipes while it is in the oven. Your kitchen will smell really amazing.
