Homemade Apple Crumble + Custard for Christmas!

Hello All,

I hope you had a wonderful, joy filled CHRISTmas day! I’m sorry this is a few days late but a plan of mine for 2020 is more blogs, more freuquently. Cooking is such a wonderful therapy the Lord has blessed us with the ability to do and here is some delicious homemade apple crumble (recipe below) and homemade custard (recipe from Paul West! Also below.)

The inspiration for apple crumble is from the beautiful Swedish women overflowing YouTube, well at least my YouTube feed anyway. There is Maria at ‘Northern Heart’, Joanna Jinton, Michelle at ‘Daughter of the Woods’ and ‘Fairyland Cottage’. I love their lifestyle and slow living, moving with the seasons and becoming one with nature. I dream of that life a lot. They inspire me creatively and to push boundaries and try new things. So, I baked my first apple crumble and it was delectable! Also, Paul West from ‘River Cottage Australia’ is a huge inspiration of mine. In his TV series ‘River Cottage Australia’ he lives off the land of our country in the Riverina area and does it beautifully. He is such an amazing cook and farmer and I followed his homemade custard recipe. I never want to go back to store bought custard, after tasting this rich, silky, lightly golden dessert, you’ll wonder how you have lived life for as long as you have without it. As soon as you pour the gold deliciousness over your crunchy, sweet apple crumble you’ll die. Right there. In your chair. And that will be the end of it.

Also, you will see below, I gathered up some native gum nuts and pine nuts and other aussie bush limbs to paint and decoration to dress our house in for Christmas. It was fun, and we did it all with the apple crumble and custard by our sides, slowly seeping in the richness of the dessert and splattering gold, silver, white and other Christmas colours everywhere.

Anyway, I hope you are all enjoying this beautiful weather and getting ready for a new decade!

God Bless!

Love from,
