Leftovers: Cool them and scoop out the flesh. Mix it with a combination of grated cheese, and either a blob of cream cheese, cream or butter and some black pepper. Squish the cheesy-creamy mixture back into the skins, put them in the fridge and bake for about 30 minutes in a hottish oven when you are ready to eat them.
|Ingredients for a quick pear crumble|
Pudding tonight is pear crumble. Crumble mix can be made in a food processor in about 2 minutes and stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 3 weeks or so. You can then create a delicious pudding in no time at all from any sad-looking fruit that happens to be hanging around. Just chop it up, add a splash or two of water, some sugar if you think it needs it, top with crumble mixture and bake for about 40 minutes until the fruit juice is bubbling over the edges of the crumble. These can be made in miniature in ramekins - good for children and those unable to exercise portion control! Serve with something cold and creamy - the children like Ambrosia custard straight from the carton.
Mix together 175g plain flour and 140g butter until they resemble fine breadcrumbs. Add 75g any sugar and 100g oats and stir together.
