6 Gala apples

810 conference pears (or whatever pear is plentiful and in season)

3 cloves

1/4 tsp of ground cinnamon

6 tbsp salted butter (melted)

1/2 cup flour

2 tsp white sugar

1/4 cup brown sugar


Preheat oven to 180C or 160C if using a fan.

Wash, peel and remove the core from both the apples and pears.  Then, cut into chunks no bigger than 1 cm / 0.5 inch big.

In a large saute pan, melt 2 tbsp of butter over medium heat. Add cloves and ground cinnamon. Stir and let spices infuse into the butter.

Add chopped apples and pears and toss in the spiced butter along with 2 tsp of white sugar. Turn heat up to medium-high heat and let cook together until the fruit has slightly softened and releases some moisture. Turn off heat and transfer to a baking dish.

In a small bowl, combine flour with brown sugar and mix until evenly combined.

Add 4 tbsp of melted butter and stir together then compress tightly with your hands until little crumbles have formed.

Sprinkle crumble mixture evenly atop the spiced apples and pears in the baking dish.

Place in a preheated oven and let bake for 30-45 or until mixture is bubbly and the top is golden brown and crunchy. Serve warm with a dash of cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.
