Apple, Dried Fruit & Almond Meal Crumble

Apple,Dried Fruit & Almond Meal Crumble

Serve this dessert warm with custard, cream or yoghurt.
It doesn't get any easier than this...

In a large saucepan over a low heat place what ever dried fruit you fancy...Today I have used Golden Raisins,Cranberries and Goji Berries add to this about 1/2 cup of a fruit juice to rehydrate...I have used a berry but any will do.
Simmer this gently to rehydrate the fruit and add a couple of kilos of chunky chopped apples...stir while the apple sort of steams and softens and make sure the juice doesn't disappear...just enough to keep the pan bottom moist.

Crumble is about 100gm almond meal in a bowl, a couple of tablespoons brown sugar  and I have added that yummy moist shredded coconut that is available everywhere. Crumb through with your finger tips about 60 grams of cold grated butter until you get that crumbly look.

Oven proof dish ...
Apple and Fruit (no juice)...
Crumble on the top ...
Bake in a 180 oven until golden and delicious...
Serve with your choice ... custard, cream, ice-cream,yoghurt or just as it comes out of a hot oven.

Can you stop at one serve?

Tanya & Pamela "The Cheese Makers"

Final stage - Air drying

Today I have discovered the stylish art of home cheese making under the skilled business owners from "The Cheese Maker" Tanya & Pamela... The photo clips above were only  one of today's recipes "Fetta" we also made a very simple Ricotta and yoghurt cheese balls which we have marinated to suit our own tastes. The art of home soft cheese making, yoghurt making and sour cream (I will never buy this product again) is not at all daunting and can be achieved by just about anyone. The short courses provided by the girls at The Cheese Maker are a great way to get a basic understanding, purchase all of the necessities required to do this at home cheeses and best of all they welcome and encourage your follow up phone calls and gladly offer you as much ongoing support as you may require. I would highly recommend attending a class.
