Organic Apple & Tart-Cherry Crumble

Organic Apple & Tart-Cherry Crumble

Food on the Flame Series 


The Filling

  • Organic apples (depending on how big you want it 5-8 apples or MORE!)
  • 1 x pack Ceres Organics tart-cherries
  • Organic juice of your choice (a few dashes to add to your filling so it doesn’t stick)
  • Cinnamon or your other favourite organic spices

The Crumble

  • 1 part organic coconut sugar
  • 2 parts organic self raising flour
  • 3 parts organic butter
  • Organic oats (optional)

Depending on how sweet, rich or crumbly you want it to be, feel free to adjust the ratios!


  1. Get that fire started! You want to start early as it is best to work over hot coals rather than direct hot flames that could burn your precious filling.
  2. Depending on your set up, you’ll need a contraption for your cast iron pot to sit on or hang over – I’ll let you get creative with this part!
  3. Thinly slice your organic apples!
  4. Once you’ve got some nice hot coals to work with - place your apples in your pot with a dash of juice and the tart cherries. Pop on that lid to get the party started.
  5. Check every so often, giving them a stir until they get all saucy, yummy and gooey. Keep adding juice as needed until it reaches your desired consistency.
  6. Add in those spices too!

Prepping the crumble

  1. My trick is to chuck the butter in the freezer and grate it into the dry mix.
  2. Use your hands to crumble it all together.
  3. Have a taste, it should be DELICIOUS already.

Putting it all together

  1. Once your filling is ready take it off the coals or reduce the heat at the bottom of the cast iron pot.
  2. Crumble the crumbly goodness on top and add the lid.
  3. Carefully add hot coals on top of the lid to create heat from above for the crisp crumble!
  4. Be patient because if it’s not ready and you take those coals off you’ll have to add them back on again!
  5. Keep that fire burning and enjoy (with some of Cheeses Love’s You Crème Fraiche)
