A Combination of Freeze Dried Berries Makes This a Great Dessert

Recently our blog posts have featured different dessert recipes........and why not?  Food storage can be fun and delicious.   Dessert dishes aren't always healthy per se, but when you make your own you can cut out a higher portion of fats, processed foods, hydrogenated oils, preservatives and other ingredients that are a part of the food industry.

For our berry crisp we used a blend of freeze dried berries to add different flavors and tartness.

This delicious treat can be made in the oven, dutch oven or solar oven.
Berry Crisp
8 c. of freeze dried berries
3 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp whole wheat flour
Rehydrate berries.  To rehydrate berries: boil water, add to berries, let sit for 10-20 minutes, drain water.  Add 3 tbsp of sugar and 1 tbsp of flour to berries.  Place in an 8x8 in baking dish.
1 c. regular rolled oats
1 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. whole wheat flour (or all purpose flour)
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 c. butter, softened
In mixer combine topping ingredients.  Sprinkle over berries.
Bake in oven for 30 minutes at 375 degrees.  You can also bake in the sun oven.  Time in sun oven varies depending on temperature.
