Washington, DC: Homemade Sushi + Berry Rosemary Crumble


Homemade Sushi - Interviewing in DC meant that I got to spend time with two of my very good friends LAH and SOA. SOA had us over for dinner one night and we feasted on homemade sushi and a berry rosemary crumble.


Unfortunately my pictures of the crumble did not turn out but it certainly stole the show. Here is the recipe for Blackberry and Rosemary Crumble from Tyler Florence. The rosemary is so key here and I cannot wait to try it myself. Huge containers of black berries were at my local Trader Joe's this morning. Someone throw a dinner party so I can bring this!
Blackberry and Rosemary Crumble
Recipe from Tyler Florence

for the crumble topping, mash together the butter, sugar, flour, and rosemary in a large bowl using your hands.

In a large bowl, mix the blackberries, sugar, arrowroot, and lemon juice together. Pour and spread the blackberry filling into a glass baking pan. Crumble the topping over the blackberry mixture. Bake for 1 hour on a nonstick cookie sheet (to catch any overflow) until the topping is brown and the fruit is bubbly. Serve the crumble with vanilla soy ice cream.
Time: 1 1/2 hours

Serves: 8

Crumble:
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
11/2 cups sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
Needles from 2 rosemary sprigs

2 quarts fresh blackberries
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch (or arrowroot)
Juice of 1 lemon
