Frequently Asked Questions
What are the best apples for crumble?
This recipe uses Pink Lady or Cripps Pink apples which are cooking apples typically used for baking. Cooking apples are different from your regular eating apples since they are less sweet and more tart. The difference in sugar content makes cooking apples perfect for making crisps, tarts, and pies. The Pink Lady apples used have a sweet, tart, and tannic taste that combines well with the apple and grapes in the crumble recipe.
Why is my crumble topping not crunchy?
Fruit crumbles are prone to soggy toppings because of the fruits’ natural juices. The best way to reduce liquid in apples and grapes is to macerate it using sugar. This will help release the juices inside the fruits without affecting its flavor. Place the fruits separately inside a zipper bag. Add in the sugar and let sit for about 15 minutes. Afterwards, drain the liquid completely from the bag. Another method you can try is adding a thickener like cornstarch to help achieve that crisp texture.
How do I remove seeds from grapes?
No seedless grapes available? No worries! Grapes with seeds will work just fine but it is best to remove those since they are bitter. The simplest way to remove seeds is by cutting the grape in half and using the tip of your knife to remove the seeds. Some use straws but we find it wasteful since it’s not only the seeds that will be removed but some of the actual fruit as well.
ConclusionEnjoy this apple grape crumble in the afternoon with a cup of warm tea or coffee. Its sweet and subtle fruity flavors are perfectly embedded in this baked crumble dessert to satisfy your cravings.
