I have just been pottering about the house today and thought I'd add a lovely apple and pear crumble recipe and a few pictures I have collected over the last week.
BUT first things first.
Apple and pear crumble
Apples ( it would be great to have cooking apples in an ideal world - but here in Jordan I haven't managed to get my hands on them so have used eating apples)
sugar to taste
for the crumble
Flour 1-2 cups ( but keep your flour around so you can add more if needed)
Butter One packet should do ( but again this is a recipe you can feel it out as you go along)
And sugar 1cup
First de-skin and chop the apples and pears and add to a pan with a little water. Bring to the boil and simmer for about 20 minutes. Add sugar and Cinnamon to taste. Then set aside. Put all the crumble ingredients together and mix roughly until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.
Get your oven dish and pour the lovely sweet pear and apple mixture in . Then add the crumble on top. Warm in a preheated oven on a medium heat for about 15-20 mins. And for a little extra crunch on top add some brown sugar and grill for an extra 5 mins before serving.
Its lovely for a comfort food moment with a scoop of luxurious vanilla ice cream.
Having a breath of fresh air as the shadows cross the drive and the evening draws in.
