All this talk of crumbles, had me reaching for a bar of Whitaker’s dark chocolate at the supermarket. Mother-in-law had brought a large bag of pears with her, and the combination of chocolate & pears … yum. So Martin Bosley once said, and he’s right. This is his suggestion.
Preheat the oven to 180 C. In a bowl combine:
5 ripe pears, peeled, cored & roughly chopped
grated zest of a lemon
3 cm piece of ginger, peeled & grated
2 tbspn soft brown sugar
50 gms dark chocolate, roughly chopped
Place in an ovenproof dish, mix another 50 gms chopped chocolate into the crumble topping, and bake for 35 – 40 minutes. The chocolate melts through the dish. Bound to please.
