Apple Raisin Crumble

We're still feeling a bit wobbly (as in sick, not the IWW, not that there's anything wrong with the IWW) and had exactly four apples in the house-which is all you need to make this wonderful fruit crumble. I made the ice cream as well (1 cup heavy cream, 1 cup 1% milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 3/4 cup sugar). For dinner, I have a pot of chicken soup (why yes, I will be making matzo balls...gosh, stereotypes don't occur in a vacuum, eh?) and some stale bread. I do hope I'm feeling better soon, this cold has really been something else.

Recipe From Granny Stark's Apple Cookbook by Olwen Woodier

You Will Need:

4 medium sized apples

1 cup raisins

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 teaspoon grated orange rind

1/4 cup orange juice

1 teaspoon ground allspice

1 cup all purpose flour

1 cup brown sugar

3/4 cup rolled oats

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 cup unsalted butter

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. and grease a 2 quart baking dish.

Peel, core and slice the apples into 1/4-1/2 inch thick slices. Combine with the raisins, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, orange rind, orange juice and allspice in the baking dish.

In a medium bowl, combine the flour, 1 cup brown sugar, oats, and cinnamon. Cut in the butter until crumbly. Spread atop the apples and raisins. Bake aprox. 30 minutes, or until browned on top.

Best served warm with cream or ice cream.
