Joe Wong, an East Bay community retinal angiographer, wondered if there was a more crispy crisp to go with apples. I researched it and here are my findings.
Using an electric beater on low speed, mix 3/4 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup butter or substitute like Earth Balance, 3/4 cup flour, 1/2 cup oats, 1/2 cup chopped toasted walnuts, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp ground ginger and 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg. The oats make a noticeable difference.
This week's recipe draws on our farmers' market for some basics. Canned organic tomatoes are used as they are no longer in season locally.
Last year I featured a Pasta Puttanesca that only simmered for about 10 minutes. The additional cooking time adds a wonderful richness and depth of flavor to this sauce. This version tasted so good I could hardly wait to share it. Be prepared for a treat.
