Apple and Blackberry Crumble

Probably my favourite pudding - especially when served with creamy custard! The hedgerows are laden with blackberries at the moment and Lowen, my Mum and I spent a lovely afternoon on Friday foraging for them.

Ingredients: (serves 2-3)
2 large cooking apples
2-3 TBSP caster sugar
150g Blackberries
100g Plain Flour
50 butter, cold and cut into cubes
45g Demerera Sugar

Method:
Step 1: Preheat oven to 190c.
Step 2: Stew the apples - peel, core and cut them into chunks and blitz in the microwave for 3 minutes - with 2-3 tbsp of sugar. Add the blackberries and cook again on full power for 1-2 minutes. Tip mixture into smallish dish (I just used a pasta bowl!)
Step 3: Make the crumble by rubbing together the flour and butter until you get breadcrumbs, then stir in demerera sugar. Sprinkle crumble mix over the stewed fruit
Step 4: Bake in oven for about 25 minutes.

Slow Cooked Gammon in Pineapple Juice

I thought it was about time I started using my slow cooker again and after this success I think its going to be more of a regular fixture in our house. I was sceptical whether gammon would work but it really did and the pineapple juice added a lovely sweetness! I'm going to try Cherry Coke next.

I served it with Macaroni Cheese and peas.
