Autumn is such a splendid time here in Herefordshire. It’s really is a beautiful place to be and I do love the chance to pick the fruits of Autumn that have swollen with the last rays of sunshine. We are very lucky that in our back garden we have damson and apple trees. I’ve plenty of recipes in mind this Autumn including a damson vodka. But to kick off my seasonal baking I’ve started with a Damson and Apple crumble. Perfect with a blob of dairy vanilla ice cream after a great Sunday Lunch.
I couldn’t wait to get out there and pick the fruit this year. The damson has done really really and we picked at least three kilos of fruit. The apple tree hasn’t fared so well but we have had a good basket full.
Damon and apple crumble
You will need:
- 400g of Damsons
- 3 eating apples
- 3 tbsp caster sugar
- 50g soft brown sugar
- 25g flaked almonds
- 75g gluten free flour
- 50g unsalted butter
1 Preheat the oven to 180c, gas mark 4.
2 Remove the stones from the damsons. I’ve found the best way to do this is with a drinking straw pushed though the damson.
3 Core and chop the apple.
4 Spread the damsons and apple in the base of a oven proof dish.
5 Sprinkle with the caster sugar.
6 In a food processor, blitz the flour, butter and soft brown sugar until it looks like breadcrumbs.
7 Stir in the flaked almonds.
8 Sprinkle the crumble mix over the fruit and bake in the oven for 25 mins. Until golden and bubbling.
9 Remove from the oven and allow to cool for five minutes.
10 Serve with a blob of dairy ice cream.
