Stewed pears and vanilla seed, only have a shot of the pre-crumbling version, as things got quite busy (I made an apple & boysenberry, and apple & apricot at the same time). All of the delicious pear juice (and a hefty measure of raw sugar) cooked up into a deliciously decadent caramel flavour Â bomb.
Will put together a recipe next week, when I’ll probbaly be making a fullsize version. (Only made a strange little 1/4 size one this time, so not yet certain about ideal quantities or cooking time.)
The crumble was about as perfect as it can be in a gas oven, I think – almost like a shortbread.
If people knew how much butter went into it, well let’s just say they might savour it even more.
But no one can resist.
