First to the craft project. I found an old jute bag which was in need of sprucing up! Using an old checked shirt and the art of applique I transformed it into rather a natty gift bag!
I decided to fill it with a tasty bottle of organic cider and some apple print glasses – a nice alternative to taking round a bottle of wine as a gift. The other option would be to fill it with some jars of homemade chutney – Nigella has a recipe for a very tasty apple chutney in her book ‘How to be a Domestic Goddess’.
All this, and the autumnal walk on Saturday, got me in the mood for a simple, no-frills, apple crumble. Here’s a ‘before’ picture:
I’d forgotten how easy a crumble is to make and how tasty it is for minimal effort! Think there will be more versions of this occurring in the coming months! Do you have a favourite version of this dish that you think I should try?
