Apple and rhubarb crumble

So I thought I would begin a series of recipes using perennial fruit and vegetables with an old favourite of mine, apple and rhubarb crumble. Who on earth wouldn’t want to dive right into that?


  • 1 eating apple…I tend to use granny smith
  • 3 or 4 stems of rhubarb
  • 2 or 3 tablespoons of sugar
  • 100g of flour
  • 125g caster sugar
  • 60g butter
  • 60g rolled oats (optional)



  1. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees C or gas mark 6
  2. Chop up the apple and rhubarb into thick chunks, sprinkle on the 2 or 3 tablespoons of sugar and place into an oven-proof dish.
  3. in a food processor, combine all of the other ingredients and pulse until you have a crumble mixture.
  4. Spread the crumble mix on top of the apple and rhubarb and bake for 45 minutes until the crumble is molten and bubbling.
