Autumn Fruit

Well, what a summer it's been, it was actually hot!  It seems years since we had such good weather for an extended length of time.  Here are a few things from my garden...

I'm still getting rhubarb, it's done well this year, hardly got any last year.
I simmered the rhubarb then put it in a pyrex bowl and covered it with blackberries.  These blackberries are from a bramble that is growing wild in my next door neighbours garden.  It is creeping into my garden, I'm sure my neighbour doesn't mind sharing!
Here's the crumble I made, yum, rhubarb and blackberry crumble.
100g plain flour
100g sugar
50g corn meal
50g porridge oats
100g butter
Whirled all together in my food processor - easy.  The oats and corn meal stop the crumble topping being stodgy.
Now I've just got to do something with my damsons
Maybe another crumble.
