Ginger Pear Crisp
Healthy Beginnings Start Here



  • 3 pears, peeled, seeded and chopped
  • Squeeze juice of 1 lemon over pears
  • 4 Tbsp. ginger preserve
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
  • ⅔ cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup ghee or butter


  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the first 3 ingredients and bring to a low simmer for 10-12 minutes.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the remaining ingredients and fold in room-temperature ghee or butter in order to create a crumb-like texture when stirred together well.
  3. Separate the mixture into two equal portions. Press half of the mixture into a 5 x 9-inch baking pan which is approximately 4 inches deep. Make a smooth crust-like layer covering the entire bottom.
  4. Remove the pear mixture from the stove and pour over the first layer of crust.
  5. Sprinkle the remaining crumb mixture over the top of the fruit layer and bake uncovered in a pre-heated oven at 350 °F for 40 minutes.
  6. Cool on a rack until the mixture has settled solidly into the pan.
