Apples to the left of me, strawberries to the right of me!
While shopping at our local grocery store, I eyed a display of strawberries. Strawberries! Big red delicious, succulent strawberries, piled high into the sky! True enough! Even though strawberry season officially begins in June and runs through mid-August, new farming methods extend its season from now (right now) till mid-December!
So … I grabbed a few crates and then some apples, too. A few other ingredients, and I was good to go. When I got home, I whipped up the best 8-ingredient dessert ever! Guiltless dessert. Healthy dessert. Oh me-oh-my I heart dessert!
Strawberry and Apple Crumble
1 lb. cooking apples
1 1/2 cups strawberries
2 tablespoons organic granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons orange juice
Ingredients for the ‘Curative’* Crumble
3 tablespoons plain wholemeal flour
2/3 cup oats
1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
*Curative; cause crumbles always make me smile. And smiling is always a good, good thing to do!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Peel, core and slice the apple.
Halve the strawberries.
Toss the apples, strawberries, sugar, cinnamon and orange juice.
Gently place into a ovenproof dish.
Mix the wholemeal flour, oats and softened butter with a fork.
Sprinkle the crumble evening over the fruit.
Bake for 40 minutes, until golden brown and bubbling.
Sounds yummy, doesn’t it? And easy and healthful too!
Enjoy. Feel free to share your favorite yum delish, healthful recipes below!!!!
