This is my preferred way to make a crumble. It always gets a positive response. Make sure the flour you use it’s fresh, though, because this will significantly affect the flavour.
- Green apples
- White sugar
- Chop the ends off the rhubarb, then skin it and cut the rhubarb into 2m chunks.
- Skin then chop the apples into chunks.
- Boil the apples and rhubarb in a small amount of sugary water (not enough to cover them, so use a lid to steam them a bit, but leave the lid off to reduce the water. Do not tip the water out because you will mess up the sugar levels and lose flavour from the apples and rhubarb).
- Mix flour, sugar and butter with your hands until it’s sweet and crumbly.
- Put the apple, rhubarb water mix (which should have achieved the desired consistency and shouldn’t be a soup) in a dish then put the crumble on top (form large pieces in your hands, then break it slightly to drop it in the dish. Finish by pouring the crumbs into the gaps).
- Cook in the oven until done (about 30 mins) then serve with vanilla icecream.
