About a year ago, my husband was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. As we educated ourselves about this disease, we decided to improve our eating habits by eliminating preservatives and processed foods from our diet. Barbara Kingsolver's book, "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle" was a wonderful read, educational, and a great resource for seasonal recipes. We've adapted her crisp recipe to fit many seasonal fruits and have enjoyed each creative result! I wanted to share because it is easy, simple and a healthy alternative for a sweet treat!
