Ingredients

  • 8 x granny smith apples
  • 1/2 x cinnamon stick
  • 1/2 x nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 1/4 cup caster sugar
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 4 Tbls butter

Method

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

Finley grate both the cinnamon stick and nutmeg. Chop the apples without the skin in to small cubes and simmer in a medium saucepan with the water. Add the spices and 1/4 cup of sugar. You can add more sugar depending on how sour or sweet you want the apples. I personally like it a little sour. Allow the apples to break down and the water to evaporate leaving a runny paste like consistency.

In a bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together with 3 Tbls of butter. If the crumble is to dry, add the last tablespoon of butter. It should hold a firm ball but then crumble away easily.

Pour the apple stew in to a pie dish and coat the top with a decent layer of the crumb. Cook in the oven for half an hour or until golden on top. Serve hot with ice cream or custard.

For a twist, add a few sticks of rhubarb in with the apples while it is simmering. Remember this will make it slightly more sour but very yummy.
