Pear and Ginger Crumble
Get cosy with this wonderful, warming Pear and Ginger Crumble.
Mother Nature helps us keep toasty in the colder months with the aid of heat producing spices like ginger and cinnamon which also make a perfect flavouring for autumnal and winter produce like pears.
The humble crumble is elevated by the combination of fresh, in season pears, with the warming spices and the buttery, oat topping that make this unpretentious dish burst with flavour and at the same time, calm the soul.
Enjoy warm or cold for breakfast or dessert with cream, ice-cream and/or custard.
