    Apple Crunch/Crisp for Sabang

    OK, this is for the irascible old git, who haunts me in Issues.

    Tart apples are best, but seeing as how apples are pretty pricey in Thailand, try some local fruit. Maybe starfruit/apple/apricots/mango -- I forget the name of that small apricot-like fruit. I wouldn't use papaya -- just don't think it would bake well. Hmmm, I just decided that soft mushy fruit might do better in a cobbler that has a crust top rather than a crisp top as a crisp top might do a sink job. Must rethink this...

    Preheat oven to 350 F/175C

    The topping is the same for the rhubarb crunch.
    • 1 cup rolled oats (I used quick oats)
    • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1 cup brown sugar
    • 1/2 cup butter/margarine
    Mix up until it gets crumbly.

    For the filler, I would mix up:
    3 c of fruit
    1 tsp corn starch/flour/tapioca
    1/2 C sugar -- if the fruit is sweet, cut it down to about 1/4 C or delete altogether
    dash of salt
    1/2 tsp each nutmeg, cinnamon (for apple only, I might do 1/3 tsp each and 1/3 of all spice)
    1 tbsp water unless the fruit is really watery; then none

    Grease a baking dish (I grease and tap flour around). Tamp down some topping on the bottom (hehehe), add the filling to about a thumb digit below the top rim (so you don't have overfloww and a messy oven to clean up), press topping on top.

    I usually put a sheet of tin foil down in case it bubbles over. Bake 35-45 min until the top looks crispy, the juice is bubbling and the fruit is soft (stick a fork in there). Mine were done at 35 min; I turned the oven off and let them sit in there for another few mins.

    Top with ice cream or cream.

    Oy, less of the 'Old'.

    Actually apples are pretty cheap around here- although the tart ones like Granny Smiths are a bit rare. Might try a mix of apples and green mangos's?

    Thanks jettie- one does miss some familiar old recipes out here in the boonies.

    ^ Hmm, OK, shift old for occasionally senile then. That green mango/apple combo sounds good. The tartness of the mango might just be the perfect Thai alt for rhubarb. DO a small dish of it and let us know. Crap, now I'm wondering where I can get green mango. Used to have a tree...

    Oh, and welcome! Glad I can be of some use outside of hitting libbies upside the head.
