Fruit Jumbled Crumble

Serves 6.


    Fruit Jumbled Crumble

    This is a versatile dessert and can take any kind of fruit, although berries get mushy quickly and don’t travel as well as stone fruits. Cook the topping separately so it stays crisp.



    Fruit Jumbled Crumble


      • 1/2 cup (125 mL) coconut flour
      • 1/4 cup (60 mL) unsalted butter, softened
      • 3 Tbsp (45 mL) finely chopped walnuts or almonds
      • 1 Tbsp (15 mL) organic unsweetened shredded coconut
      • 2 Tbsp (30 mL) organic cane sugar
      • 3 to 4 peaches or nectarines, pitted and sliced
      • 1 to 2 apples, cored and sliced
      • 3 Tbsp (45 mL) maple syrup
      • 1 Tbsp (15 mL) coconut flour

      For topping, place flour and butter in bowl. Using fingers, rub together to form coarse meal. Gently mix in walnuts, coconut, and sugar. Place in frying pan and set over medium-high heat. Stir often until mixture turns light golden. Set aside.

      Toss fruit with syrup, flour, and ginger. For easy clean-up, line bottom of cast iron Dutch oven with parchment. Spoon in fruit mixture, then sprinkle with topping. Cover and bake over medium heat until fruit is soft, about 20 minutes. Or nestle Dutch oven in the side of ashy coals and slow bake for 30 to 40 minutes.

      To cook in frying pan, melt 1 Tbsp (15 mL) butter over medium heat. Add fruit mixture, then cover and cook, stirring often until apples start to soften, 10 minutes. Stir in up to 2 Tbsp (30 mL) water, as needed, if fruit isn’t juicy. Divide among bowls and top with crumble mixture. Excellent with a dollop of Greek yogurt if you have any.

      Double duty: Spoon leftovers over Pina Colada Pancakes the next morning or stir into breakfast oatmeal.

      Mussels with Tomato, Saffron, and Fennel

      B12-rich mussels are a very good and economical source of protein and iron. Steamed mussels are a classic way to enjoy seafood—and so is this rich, aromatic broth of tomato, fennel, and saffron. Be sure to allow saffron to fully infuse to get the full flavour benefit, and finish off the dish with the fragrant fennel fronds. Sustainability status Farmed mussels are considered highly sustainable due to their low impacts on the environment. They are easy to harvest, require no fertilizer or fresh water, and don’t need to be fed externally, as they get all their nutritional requirements from their marine environment. Mussel prep Selection: Look for mussels with shiny, tightly closed shells that smell of the sea. If shells are slightly open, give them a tap. Live mussels will close immediately. Storage: Keep mussels in the fridge in a shallow pan laid on top of ice. Keep them out of water and cover with a damp cloth. Ideally, consume on the day you buy them, but within two days. They need to breathe, so never keep them in a sealed plastic bag. Cleanup: In addition to being sustainable, farmed mussels tend to require less cleaning than wild mussels. Most of the fibrous “beards” that mussels use to grip solid surfaces will have been removed before sale. But if a few remain, they’re easily dispatched: grasp the beard with your thumb and forefinger and pull it toward the hinge of the mussel and give it a tug. Afterward, give mussels a quick rinse and scrub away any areas of mud or seaweed, which, with farmed mussels, will require minimal work.
