A crumble is a typical Irish and Anglo-Saxon dessert that is very easy to make, which basically consists of fresh fruit, which we cover with a mixture of flour, sugar and butter. As we prepare it, we bake it, and when baked it results in a tart with crumbly and crunchy dough, with a base of soft, roasted and most appetizing fruit.

Keep in mind that the fruit, when roasted, apart from softening, enhances its flavor. So crumbles are a delicious way to enjoy all kinds of fruit. From there, you can play a thousand and one tricks so that the crumble is different and each one more delicious: from flavoring the fruit (with spices and aromatics, such as cinnamon, vanilla or mint...), to making mixtures of fruits.

For a good crumble, it is also highly recommended to use different ingredients to make the cover: try mixing it with dried fruit flour, or chopped dried fruit (some almonds or macadamia nuts are sure to go perfectly with that pear crumble or of strawberries that you are going to prepare... You can already imagine it, right?).

I also encourage you to vary the sugars you use for its preparation, from adding part of quality brown sugars or panela, which can be very aromatic, to adding nutmeg or cinnamon in the same cover.

The recipe that we bring today is a delicious strawberry and rhubarb crumble , a great way to take advantage of the Fusiontec low pot , a most versatile piece of iron... while we enjoy the delicious fruit that spring brings us. Dear strawberries, roasted you are delicious.
