Homemade crumble

On these blustery autumn evenings, nothing beats a good crumble. Especially on a sunday evening after a long run in the cold! And when you can make one almost for free. On many a running route I've found tons and tons of blackberries, longing to be picked!

Now, I've never made crumble before, but I recruited a willing expert/ friend (who happens to have a very convenient apple tree) and off we went.

So you need some blackberries, as many as you can pick.....

and some apples... 4 or 5 depending how many you can reach!!!

Wash all the fruit of and scrub the apples a little...

As our apples were a little under ripe we stew them (basically cut them into chunks and heat with a little water and sugar see here for details)

You then just layer the fruit, as much as you need to fill your dish and sprinkle with sugar (as much or as little as you like!)

Then add the crumble (you can cheat and but it ready made)

The crumble is made as per these instructions

And here you go! Half eaten before I could even get a pic!

Any good baking ideas guys?
