The hearty crumble recipe is easy to make and is ideal for cosy winter mealtimes.
Firstly place the cut apple pieces into a large fry pan with 1 cup of sugar and the juice of 1 lemon. Over a medium heat gently stew until the apple is tender and a little fluffy around the edges. Add a little water if the mixture is dry and not cooking evenly. Once cooked, remove from the heat into a large bowl.
Place the plums into the same pan and add the sugar and add about two tablespoons of water and gently simmer until the plums just begin to soften. Remove from the heat and add to the apple. Add the blackberries to the fruit mixture and then fill a baking dish with the fruit mixture.

Coconut and dried fruit.
