This recipe is dedicated to my friends, Nick and Elise, whose new house we visited last weekend, and who, very kindly, allowed me to go and fill a bag with apples from the two trees in their garden.

could I suppose have given them the crumble I made by way of thanks, but, umm, well, I thought it was important to test it first.  Maybe I’ll give them the next one…
