persimmon apple ginger streusel thingy
adapted from a recipe in "the best of sunset: 150 all-time favorite recipes" special publication. thinly sliced ripe but firm persimmons were mixed with thin slices of a small granny smith apple, tossed in lemon juice mixed with freshly grated ginger, and then coated in a couple tablespoons of corn starch. a layer of crushed ginger snaps mixed with ginger-flavoured granola and melted margarine (there's a lactose-intolerant person in the house, otherwise butter would be most welcome) was packed into the bottom of a square baking dish, topped with the persimmon-apple mixture, then more of the snap-granola mix was sprinkled evenly over the top. bake at 325ºF for 30-40 minutes.
serve with heavy cream, whipped cream or in this case, ciao bella hazelnut gelato.
