What does one do with half a can of cherry pie filling? How about a couple of individual crisps? I try always to have some crisp mix in the fridge, it keeps for weeks if not months in a covered container. The recipe is so simple too. 2 cups flour, 2 cups rolled oats, 1 1/4 cups brown sugar and 1/2 cup of margarine which has been worked into the dry ingredients. Oh yes, a dash of cinnamon is nice if you like cinnamon. Whenever you want a quick dessert this topping is ready to sprinkle liberally on top of any fruit you choose. When using apples I find it helps to microwave them first to soften and add a bit extra sugar.
Also in my kitchen today is Peach Jam ( from peaches from the freezer). I make jam as we need it using corn starch to thicken instead of Certo. I use less sugar than most do because we love using LOTS of jam and if I decrease the sugar we feel "healthier". LOL
