Thankful For... {FOOD}

Hello artsy friends stopping in today, I am continuing my 
"Three Weeks Of Thanks" series today and featuring Food!
What's more heart warming around the thanksgiving season then hearty food.?
Please join me by sharing your favorite thanksgiving recipes ALL WEEK LONG!
Mixed Berry Crisp
...............{Autumn In A Jar}
This recipe serves both as a quick fix dessert and a gift {A little piece of Autumn 
in a jar}. Jar up some of your favorite fruits, nuts and more and show thanks 
with a bit of the season in a jar to warm up loved ones day. I gave these 
jars to a few friends today. Here's how to jar up some autumn of your own.. 
Artsy Ingredients Needed
*A few mason jars for your crisps
*Mixed berries {I used blue and black berries}1 Cup
*White or brown sugar per cup of fruit - 1Tablespoon
*1 Tablespoon Of Flour (Sparingly depending on how much fruit)
*Cinnamon and Almond Extract (About half a teaspoon)
Topping Mix
Chopped Almonds
3/4 Cup Flour
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1 Cup Old Fashioned Oats
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1 Stick Chilled Butter Unsalted (slice into pieces)
To begin, wash your fruit or if thawed out fruit, give it a rinse and allow to sit
and drain for a few minutes. You can get as creative as possible with all sorts
of fruits available to you.. Peaches, cherries, raspberries and more. After draining
your fruit, add your flour, sugar and extracts all together and mix well. 
Once you are all set mixing everything together, scoop up your fruit mixture and 
place into your jars. Get as much fruit to measure up to the first line in your jar.
It's okay to splurge.. The fruit MAKES the jar, so add enough to each jar.
I started a separate batch for baking while making my jars : )) 
Mixing Topping
Mix all your toppings listed given above. It'll be a little workout trying 
to mix it together well but take a moment, wash your hands 
and dig in to mix very well. (Smells Amazing).
When you are done mixing your toppings, grab a handful and carefully press it down 
to top your fruit already in your jar. Pack it up and press down to have it evenly over 
the top. I LOVE toppings.. I actually added some thin cut almonds to mine 
as well. You can add nuts, or whatever else you like to jazz up your toppings. .
I topped my little stash I had going as well : )) 
Once you are all set with topping your fruit in your jars, seal tightly and it's all 
ready to dress up as a gift, or freeze for treats around your home. Since I was giving 
mine to a few close friends and neighbor's, I decided to decorate the jars a bit.
I took some craft paper, cut out some circles using the base of the bottle to measure 
the circle width. I cut out some circles that fit the top perfectly. I took some 
parchment paper, covered the top of the jar (I took out the inner piece of the jar 
first and covered the jar with parchment paper), I fit the pretty circles on top of 
the parchment paper and placed the rest of the lid back on the jar. It sealed pretty
 tightly and the new look was actually really pretty!!! Tadaaa.. It's ready to gift!
I popped mine in the oven for about 35minutes, added some whip cream and 
uuuummmm --- we all munched away.. SO yummy!!. If you freeze it, set it in 
the oven in the jar when you first start heating the oven, this way, the jar heats
up gradually as the oven gets hotter. I would be nervous about popping in a
frozen jar into an already well heated oven.. Cook on about 350degree's.
Great way to feast on a bit of the season on your thanksgiving day!
