We eat a lot of apples in my house: sliced and spread with peanut butter or hummus or pate, tossed into salads, stews and curries, and baked into crumbles, cookies, pies and cakes. Apple crumble is one of my go to desserts because I know that I always have the ingredients on hand, it’s quick to put together and it makes everyone happy.
