"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Ingredients:  
1/3 c. sugar
2 tbsp. flour
1 pt. or 2 c. sliced rhubarb, or strawberries
2 c. blueberries
1/3 c. chopped pistachios, or pecans
3/4 c. flour
1/2 c. white sugar
1/4 c. brown sugar
6 tbsp. cold unsalted butter, cut into chunks

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 375. Butter a shallow 2 quart baking dish. In a bowl, stir together 2 tbsp flour and the 1/3 cup of sugar. Hull strawberries, if using, and slice. Put all fruit in a bowl. Add some fresh lemon juice and some grated rind if you like. Add sugar mixture and stir.
For the topping - whisk the flour and sugars together. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender (or use a fork), until the mixture is like coarse meal. Add the nuts (this is a must), and toss well. Put the berry/fruit mixture into the baking dish. Squeeze handfuls of the topping together and crumble it over the filling. The chunks should rest on top of the filling instead of sinking into it. Bake the crisp in upper third of the oven until the filling is bubbling and the top is crisp and golden. About 50 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature with vanilla ice cream Wonderful!

Personal Notes:
Pistachios make this crisp unusually good! But it's good with pecans too. Nice summer dessert after a barbecue with friends.
