    I've bought a bag of frozen summer berries and want to make a crumble. I assume I've got to defrost the berries but do I add water or sugar or anything before adding the crumble and baking?

    There's no need to defrost them, and don't add water, they're loads in them naturally already. Personally, I would add sugar though, as I find berries a bit too sharp. I'd sprinkle it on top before I added the crumble.

    I've just frozen some apple crumble, and when I cook that it'll be from frozen - it might need an extra 5 Min's in the oven, I'll just test with a skewer to see that everything is cooked in the middle.
  • I want to make a crumble as I have loads of apples, but Im not sure how to go about it! know how to make the crumble mixture, but do I have to cook the apples on their own first before putting mix on top?

    Many thanks

    Yes just peel and slice the apples put in a pan and cover with water and sprinkle sugar over them, bring to the boil then simmer until the apples are cooked. Adding a clove adds a lovely flavour!

    I'm lazier than that I'm afraid. I put the apples in the dish I plan to bake the crumble in, sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon, cover and microwave for about 5 mins. Then pop the crumble on top, and into the oven for about 30 mins. This makes the apple mixture very tender, but not so cooked that the apples have descended into pulp. If you like a smoother texture, cook them for longer.

    Equal amounts of flour and a fat for a basic one, you can add a little sugar if you want. If you want something special use butter for the fat and replace about a quarter of the flour with porridge oats.

    I never cook my apples first but I do bake it a little longer in the oven as I like my crumbly well done. It always comes out fine, apples are not hard or anything
