I bet after yesterday's post you were wondering, "what do you do with a basket full of wee little crab apples?" Well, let me tell you... you grab your friends, some knives and cutting boards and you core and core and core some more until you have a big pot full of apple slices, perfect for filling a traditional English crumble.
1. Put the apple slices in a pot with two tablespoons of butter, two tablespoons of sugar and a wee bit of water and reduce them down, stirring occasionally.
2. While the apples are on the stove, mix the flour and sugar together and then cut in the butter until you have a course mixture.
3. Put apples on the bottom of a baking pan (optional, but delicious, add blackberries) and top with crumble mixture.
4. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until the crumble is golden brown.
5. Leave the crumble to sit for five minutes before serving.
6. Don't forget the ice cream!
