Cranberry Crumble

I’m moving to Wyoming soon, but before I left DC I went to one last Battlestar Galactica potluck. We did a Wyoming theme, which mostly turned out to mean Bison meat and recipes from a Native American cookbook. This was from the cookbook, is 3/4 various types of sugar, and was delicious!

IMG_4357The cornmeal mixture gets a crisp top, and makes a pretty unique sort of crumble. Whether because of all the sweetness, or because of the cornmeal top, people were pretty into this!

Ingredients:

Cornmeal Topping:

  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

Cranberry Mixture:

  • 4 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 cup sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and butter a 8″ square baking dish. I only had an 8X11.5″ dish, so I just added a quarter more of each ingredient to make it larger for the larger dish.

Stir together all the ingredients of the cornmeal mixture, creating a thick dough, and set aside.

IMG_4354Combine all the cranberry mixture ingredients in a large saucepan over medium heat. Simmer for 10 minutes, or until the berries have begun to burst, stirring frequently, then pour into the greased pan.

IMG_4355Drop the cornmeal mixture in tablespoon sized portions over the cranberry mixture.

IMG_4356Bake 20-25 minutes, until the topping is golden brown.

IMG_4357Let cool 10 minutes, then serve still warm.

Yum!

Yum!

We’ll find out shortly if my next kitchen has better lighting, for slightly better photos! Here’s hoping!
