When I went to the supermarket the other day to get some nice rhubarb so I could make a crumble, I was a little disappointed when I couldn't find any decent looking strands. I decided to make an apple crumble instead, since you can always find some nice apples.
Technically, the season for Apple Crumble is already over but for me this is a year round desert. The smell of an apple crumble in the oven is so irresisitible that even when it is 90 degrees outside, my family still devours this dessert. Although my kids prefer Jamie Oliver's classic Fruit Crumble recipe I love the nuttyness of Nigella's version. She adds sunflower kernels, oats and almonds as a topping which adds a lovely crunch to the dish.
