a guesthouse life...
Older residents of George still remember raids into the apple orchards at Fairview -when it was finally decided to develop the suburb of Bergsig there was much debate whether to call the suburb Appelboord or Bergsig! We still have one apple tree left. I would like to share the easiest apple crumble recipe you will ever try. Foolproof, with such basic ingredients that you'll be able to whip it up in a flash.Delicious served with custard, cream or ice cream.
Switch oven to 180°Celsius.
Open two cans of tinned 410 g apple slices (or peach or pears...) Or stew about 4 apples in a pot with little water, a stick of cinnamon and sugar to taste if you have your own apple tree!
Drain off syrup and plonk into an ovenproof dish.
In a mixing bowl: 1 and ¼ cup flour; ¼ teaspoon salt; 125g butter (margarine if you do not have butter) ; 1 cup sugar (white, brown, whatever...)
Rub between your finger until all crumbly and smooth over fruit (smooth down with a fork or the back of a spoon) Pop into the oven for 35 minutes - until brown.
That's the basic recipe, but you could add a handful of slivered almonds or coconut; I always add a whole cinnamon stick to the apples. Or half rhubarb; half apple - that's my favorite...
