2 C peaches, sliced (I used canned peaches and sliced them in half again)
⅓ C sugar
1 tbsp corn starch
½ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp nutmeg

1½ C all-purpose flour
1½ C quick oats
¾ C brown sugar
½ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt

1.In a large bowl, gently stir together strawberries, peaches, sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. Set aside.
2.Preheat oven to 350. Lightly spray a 9×13 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
3.Whisk together flour, oats, brown sugar, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Cut in butter using a pastry blender or two forks until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

4.Reserve 1½ C of streusel and press remaining streusel into the bottom of prepared baking pan.

6.Bake for 28-30 minutes or until streusel just begins to turn golden brown.(mine had to cook for more like 45 min)
