Pear, Apple, & Ginger Crumble Recipe

Pear, Apple, & Ginger Crumble Recipe
Superbowl Sunday is a day, not only to watch the Superbowl on television, but also to eat, eat, eat. And, what most participants want to eat, eat, eat is not healthy stuff, fru-fru stuff, or gourmet stuff. Superbowl food is hearty, filling, fattening, unhealthy, stick-to-the-ribs, and just plain yummy. Chicken wings, calorie laden dips, filling stews, soups, and chilies, or substantial sandwiches make up the snacks and main dishes; for dessert, old-fashioned cookies (dozens per person) and home-style bakes like this delicious Pear, Apple, & Ginger Crumble served with warm English custard or scoops of rich, full-fat ice cream, complete the menu.
This delicious crumble is actually traditional English Pub food, and will satisfy even the most discriminating armchair quarterback or sports enthusiast. A mix of pears, apples, and candied ginger (which gives it a little sass) is topped with a crumbly crisp topping – mmmmmm! Served warm, room temperature, or cold, there won’t be even a morsel left after the game.

Pears and apples are definitely at their best since they are in season; candied ginger is available in the Asian section of most larger grocery stores and of course at Asian markets.
