Apple and rhubarb crumble

Apple and rhubarb crumble

I’m not a massive fan of crumble…

But my hubby absolutely loves it! I really like to surprise him every so often with a crumble for dessert and this apple and rhubarb really hits the spot.

During lockdown we, like everyone else, had to find creative ways to keep ourselves occupied. One of the things we’ve discovered was the beautiful walks around our new house (we moved about a month before Covid struck). One of these walks led us to a pick your own farm where there was an abundance of fruit and vegetables.

As soon as regulations lifted we made a massive outing to the farm. We picked to our heart’s content as much raspberries, gooseberries, strawberries, beans, carrots, corn rhubarb and other yummy delights.
