Place the all the filling ingredients into a large pan on a medium-high heat and stew for 30 mins, stirring and adding water as required

Spread over an ovenproof dish about 3 inches thick. over in clingfilm and refrigerate for at least 2 hours

For the cumble, mix together all of the ingredients except the sugar with your fingertips, rubbing it all together until it forms a crumb consistency. It takes about 5 mins to achieve this

When ready, pre-heat oven to 180°C and scatter the crumble mix over the fruit. (You will not need it all, so place it in the freezer for another time of mix with honey and toast tom make really tasty grenola!)

Place in oven and cook for about 20-30 mins until crunchy and golden on top. Serve with plenty of hot custard! (creme anglais for the French!)
