I’m excited to be sharing recipes using farmer’s market ingredients this week. My first recipe is a blueberry crisp for two.
But first, a confession. We do not have a great farmer’s market nearby but my grocer does have pretty great produce. So I’ve chosen some recipes this week you can make with items you find at a typical farmer’s market.
So, while I’ve made one confession, I should make another.
I’m not a huge fan of blueberries. I like them in things like bread and muffins but don’t really enjoy them otherwise.
My husband loves any kind of fruit crisp and my youngest loves blueberries so I worked up this blueberry crisp for two. Now, it’s easily adjusted for more, or even less, servings making it a fun individual dessert for a dinner party.
I venture a guess, that because this dish is almost licked clean, that it was a success.
Blueberry season in Florida is actually over. Although we have nice berries in-store now, Florida grows beautiful berries but the season ends in May.
When I first started measuring out ingredients I only used 1 ½ cups of blueberries. I quickly decided that was not enough for the size ramekins I have so I increased them to 2 cups.
The topping was the right amount for two servings. I used a new to me oatmeal product in the topping. It’s Irish oatmeal from Flavahan’s and both of my taste testers said this was the best crisp I’ve ever made.
Again, I think that an empty dish says it all!

- 2 cups fresh blueberries
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon white sugar
- ¼ cup flour
- ¼ cup rolled oats (I used Flahavan's Irish Oatmeal)
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons cold butter, unsalted
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- Vanilla ice cream for serving
- Preheat oven to 350 F.
- In a small bowl toss together the blueberries with the cornstarch and the sugar until well-coated. Put blueberries into two ramekins (I used Aplico #3 which are about 10 ounces each) and set aside on a rimmed, foil-lined baking sheet.
- In another small bowl combine the flour, oats, brown sugar, and salt. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender and use your hands to work it all together, working the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture is crumbly.
- Sprinkle the crumble mixture over the berries and bake for 30 minutes, or until the berries are bubbly and the topping is golden.
