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.

Oh Blackberries ... not had a good blackberry and apple pie since leaving UK 14 yrs ago ... we really can only get frozen ones here ... not many wild ones they all get zapped with spray by the local authority ... and people will not grow them in their gardens can understand that ... hugs Laurie
