Serving suggestions

Serve hot with homemade custard.


The original recipe called for rolled porridge oats, but I changed it to cornflakes as I remember my mum making crumble like this, many years ago. This type of crumble does not hold together as well as a flour-type crumble, but it's all crunch and delicious.

A made in heaven fruit combination is to add a handful of topped and tailed blackcurrents to the apples before cooking, marvellous!

Peeling ginger

There is no need to peel ginger. As a result of attending a Thai cookery demo, we have learnt that peeling ginger is unnecessary unless for aesthetic purposes as the skin is high in fibre and full of flavour. However, do remove any bits that have become tough or woody.
