Peachy Pear Crisp


1/2 cup peach preserves
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
6 pears, peeled, cored, and sliced
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup oats
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon margarine

Meanwhile, in small bowl, combine flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. With pastry blender or fork, blend in margarine until mixture resembles cornmeal. Add milk; toss to combine.
