Apple Crumble

Yeah, I'd have to agree with Chonnie- I guess in the busy-ness and travels of us all food's been a thing someone else has done for us. The flat here has settled into a steady menu of 'sausarole' (sausage casserole), and variations of the
' mea & mash' menu. ('mea' = 'something' in maori).

Anywho- last week I ended up with kilos and kilos of apples, and no idea of what to do with it- so mum sent me her trusty crumble recipe:

"Slice required number of apples into a dish

(Recipe says to add cloves, and/or sprinkle with cinnamon plus - and sugar.
I do not add anything to flavour, and find apples are sweet enough.)

Rub together ¾ cup of flour
½ cup sugar
2 ½ tablespoons of BUTTER (about 30 g)
until crumbly

(If you have a kitchen wiz – just put all ingredients in and wizz. Butter is better chilled and firm – which I guess is no problem in Dunedin in the winter.)

Spread over apples.

Bake in moderate oven until top is brown.

Serve while hot with one or more of the following.

Final step: eat by fire while it snows outside. Yoomy!

That sounds super yummy. Nothing like warm food when it's cold.

To cope with the heat wave over here (32+ yesterday) we're becomming BBQ and new and exciting salad experts!

Snow to put in drinks would be very welcome right bout now!

Whoops - two lots for sugar and no butter......

After talking to Delia we decided the 2 1/2 tablsp BUTTER - not SDugar should conver to 35 - 40 g butter.

whoops, delia will need to edit... shortage of nice apples in Auckland shops at the moment, but we are being over run with lemons at the flat. And in sad news the neighbour cut down their feijoa tree :( Feijoa and apple crumble is yummy...
