2 lbs. sweet firm apples, such as braeburn
1 lb.fresh or frozen pitted cherries
1 cup roughly chopped walnuts
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 Tbs. fresh orange juice
2 tsp. grated orange zest
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. grated nutmeg
1 Tbs. cornstarch
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup all purpose flour
12 Tbs. unsalted butter, cut into pieces
Vanilla ice cream, as accompaniment

Preheat the oven to 375.

Peel and core apples and cut into 8 pieces. In a large bowl, combine the apples, cherries, walnuts, sugar, orange juice, orange zest, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon or nutmeg and cornstarch and toss well to combine.

In a separate bowl, combine the oats, brown sugar, flour, remaining 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and remaining 1/8 teaspoon of nutmeg. Blend the butter into the dry ingredients using your fingers until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Pour the fruit mixture into a 9 x 13 baking dish. Sprinkle the crumb mixture over the top and bake for 15 minutes. Lower the temperature to 350 and continue baking until bubbly, apples are tender, and the top is golden brown, 35 - 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and let rest at least 10 minutes before serving warm, with vanilla ice cream on top.
