I love it when people offer me glut produce and make sure I don’t waste it. Last weekend my Mum sent me home with a large bag of windfall apples. They were coming for lunch today so when she rang to say she would bring another bag of apples I thought I better put some to use for lunch!

The only problem with windfalls is they are often small and take ages to peel!

This is my crunchy crumble recipe.


1kg Windfall apples lightly stewed with sugar to taste (some of Mum’s apples are eating so quite sweet) and 1 tbsp lemon juice
100g/3½oz plain flour
75g/2½oz butter
50g/2oz rolled oats
100g/3½oz demerara sugar


1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C

2. Spoon the stewed apples into an ovenproof dish (or four small ramekins).

3. Rub together flour and butter until resembling breadcrumbs.

Add oats and sugar

    Windfall apples – most people don’t even know what these are now and just expect perfect ones from the supermarket. Lovely crumble.

      I love it when I get produce for nothing! Must be my Yorkhire genes from my mum!
