This is a classic crumble -- a crisp-topped fruit dessert, made more nutritious with the addition of oats, almonds, and whole-grain flour in the topping.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and butter an 8x8- or 11x7-inch baking dish; set aside.
In a large bowl, toss the fruit with the lemon juice, cornstarch, and 3 tablespoons granulated sugar; arrange in the prepared dish.
In another bowl, combine the flour, oats, sliced almonds, brown sugar, and remaining 1/2 cup granulated sugar. Add the lemon zest, ginger, and salt, and stir. Rub the butter into this mixture, working it between your fingers until crumbles form. Sprinkle over the fruit.Bake until the fruit bubbles and the top is nicely browned, 40 to 45 minutes. Serve lukewarm, topped with yogurt, ice cream, or whipped cream.
