Cranberry Crumble

All right, we all survived the Christmas craziness and the masses of food that came our way these past few days, right my friends? I, for my part, absolutely adored the holidays. It’s true, there may were a few setbacks, the turkey was dry as bone after leaving it sit in foil for too long, the potatoes that just would not turn crisp in the oven – but after all, these really did not matter. Spending time, cheer and laughter with your loved ones is about as good as it can get! Now, what to do with all these leftovers? Here is an idea for your cranberry sauce sitting in the fridge (which was one of my Christmas dinner things that turned out very well!). Dice some apples and a pear and get a heartwarming crumble in the oven. 


Your leftover cranberry sauce or
a pa
ckage of cranberries cooked with 200g sugar and splosh of sherry, cooled
2 apples
1 pear

100g cold butter
100g sugar (really any kind)
100g plain flour
100g blanched and diced almonds

Dice the apples and the pear, do not bother to peel them, and mix them with the cranberries in a casserole dish. Then rub the butter into the mixed ingredients with your hands, until you got a crumbly texture. Feel free to adjust the amounts of the ingredients if your texture is not right, I didn’t have the energy to be correct on my measuring this time. I just wanted quick and crumbly goodness around the corner! Vanilla, cinnamon? Also fine by me! Anyways, this is all you got to do.  

Put in the oven at 180°C for about 20 minutes. Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. And let there be joy in the aftermath of Christmas.
