The Apple Tree


A couple of weeks ago, I visited a giant apple tree...


.... and this week I swapped a basket full of empty jars, for a basket full of fresh home grown apples from that same lovely tree.

Cathie told me about her Apple and Berry Crumble recipe, and so I trundled off to the supermarket in search of the missing ingredients that weren't already in my pantry.


I searched and searched and searched for rolled oats in the baking aisle..... only to realise they were with the breakfast cereals (can you tell that I've never actually bought a packet of rolled oats in my life before)?

I retrieved my kitchen scales from the parcel packing bench (sadly, they're never used for cooking anymore, only weighing parcels) and measured out all that delicious brown sugar.


Tada! It's a pity that you can't insert an aroma into a blog post, because it smelled amazing when it came out of the oven. 


This was my afternoon tea yesterday.... and my breakfast thismorning.

Deeeeeeelicious!

Oh yum. If I couldn't chose to live on gelati for the rest of my life, I'd chose crumble as my other choice. Mmmmmm!

Obviously there's a definite swing towards 'crumble' in blog world at the moment. Must have missed this on Cathie's blog - can't wait to try it - especially for breakfast!

We don't need the aroma, the image shows how good it must taste. You can't fail when using one of Cathie's recipes.
