Rox’s Fairtrade blackberry and apple crumble
Fairtrade blackberry and apple crumble
For my summery blackberry and apple crumble I have adapted my Nan’s deliciously indulgent crumble and made it as Fairtrade as possible. Where I am unable to find a Fairtrade version of an ingredient I use an organic one instead. Organic farming and production methods tend to be more sustainable and ethical overall.
1 cups organic spelt flour
1/2 cup of Fairtrade sugar
1 teaspoons baking powder
125g organic butter
Pinch of salt
4 cooking apples (I use ones from the tree in our garden)
½ cup of Fairtrade sugar
½ teaspoon of Fairtrade cinnamon
Preheat oven to 180°C.
Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Rub the butter into the mix using your fingertips until it forms a dough. Leave in the fridge for a while to get nice and cold.
Peel, core and slice the apples. Add a couple of tablespoons of water to a saucepan, add the apple slices and simmer on a low heat with the lid on until apples have softened.
Mix the apples, sugar, blackberries and cinnamon and transfer to a pie dish.
Grate the cold dough onto the top of your filling and bake in the oven for 30 min or until brown.
Delicious served with a dollop of cream or Fairtrade vanilla ice-cream.
