Re: Apple Crumble

Try this quick one from the worldwidegourmet … &lg=en

The food there looks delicious, but it'd be a miracle if Asda or Jacksons stock most of the ingredients. I should know about Asda; I work there!  sad

Re: Apple Crumble

Olá HelenTM!

Try this one:

But make some adjustments:12 Granny Smith apples instead of 6; 150g white sugar (plus 50g to cook the apples in the beggining); 150g of plain white flour and 125g of butter.

Serve with cream or vanilla ice cream - You will cry for more!

Summer Crumble Recipe courtesy Jamie Oliver
Show:  Pukka Tukka
Episode:  Back to Basics 

Recipe Summary
Difficulty: Easy
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Yield: 4 servings

3 Bramley apples, quartered, cored and finely chopped
2 punnets (small baskets, or pints) blackberries
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
Small handful basil, chopped
5 heaping tablespoons sugar
4 heaping tablespoons flour
1/4 pound butter

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C or gas 6).
Put the fruit into the bowl with the balsamic vinegar, basil, and 2 tablespoons of sugar. Add a little more sugar if your blackberries are a bit sour. Mix and put aside to marinate.

Using your fingers, rub together the flour, butter, and the rest of the sugar (you can also do this in a food processor?just blitz until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs). I prefer to do this by hand as I like to end up with a nice rustic-looking crumble?with some bits bigger than others.

Put the fruit into an ovenproof serving dish or into individual dishes. Sprinkle the crumble mix over the fruit, making sure to pile more into the middle of the dish. Bake it in the oven for about 30 minutes, or until the middle of the crumble is evenly golden and the fruit has started to bubble up around the edges.

Re: Apple Crumble

Serves 4.

4 medium apples, peeled and chopped (about 450g of peeled, chopped apple)
2 tablespoons (40ml) water
2 tablespoons sugar

Place chopped apples in medium saucepan with water and sugar and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and cover. Simmer for about 10 minutes until apples are just soft. Spoon into an ovenproof dish with a 4 cup (1 litre) capacity.

75g (1/2 cup) plain flour
60g (3 1/2 tablespoons) caster sugar
60g pecans or almonds, finely chopped
60g butter, chopped

Mix plain flour, sugar and nuts together in a large bowl. Using your fingertips, rub the butter into the flour mixture until well combined. Sprinkle topping over apples. Bake at 180 degrees for 20-25 minutes until topping is lightly browned. Serve hot or warm.
