    4 apples
    1 cup water
    1/2 cup lemon juice
    3 tbsp Chelsea Raw Sugar
    Pinch of salt
    2 cups feijoa pulp

    1/2 cup Edmonds Standard Grade Flour
    1/2 cup rolled oats
    1/2 cup ground almonds
    1/2 cup Chelsea Soft Brown Sugar
    1 tsp ground ginger
    150 g cold Tararua Butter


    Cut apple quarters into thick slices and put into a medium-sized saucepan.
    Add water, lemon juice, Chelsea Raw Sugar and a pinch of salt, cover and bring to the boil. Turn down to a simmer and cook for a couple of minutes.
    Add feijoa pulp to the saucepan, stir then cover and cook for a further 2 minutes until lightly poached.
    Drain into a colander in the sink and leave while preparing the crumble topping.

    In a deep bowl mix together Edmonds Standard Grade Flour, oats, ground almonds, Chelsea Soft Brown Sugar and ginger. Rub in the Tararua Butter until the mixture is clinging together in clumps. (Try using a grater to grate the cold Tararua Butter straight into the mixture)
    Transfer the drained fruit to a greased ovenproof dish or individual cocottes. The fruit should fill three quarters of the dish. Sprinkle crumble over the top of the fruit.
    Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C for 20-25 minutes until the crumble is cooked and fruit juices start to bubble up through the crumble. Enjoy with fresh cream, custard or ice cream.

I agree need to increase dry ingredients to get more crumble, seems to be way too much butter. I ended up with a lump of dough, not crumble.

Very nice, but did add more flour and oats as didn't have ground almonds. Plus I added finely chopped walnuts. And left out the ginger. Delicious.

It is very tasty and nice. Good recipe.

I found that the crumb came out quite wet, other than that, delicious!

Very Sweet

Delicious! Though I do agree maybe not quite enough crumble though I didn't have almonds so increased oats and flour!

The crumble ingredients needed to be doubled.

How much salt do you add?
CHELSEA: Good question! Just a small pinch. We have updated the recipe accordingly.

I don't think there is enough crumble, but I just added more ingredients to fix this!
