Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). In a bowl, rub the butter into the flour and ground almonds with your fingertips until the mixture resembles coarse bread crumbs. Stir in the sugar. Place the cherries in a 11/2 quart (2 liter) dish and sprinkle with the sugar and apple juice. Scatter the crumble mixture over the top. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Allow the crumble to cool completely, then wrap in foil, and freeze.
  2. To serve, defrost in the refrigerator overnight. Reheat uncovered in a preheated 350°F (180°C) oven for 25 minutes or until bubbly-hot.
Tips:
  • Instead of cherries, use the same quantity of chopped apples, soft stone fruit, or berries.
  • Cheat...Use three 15oz (425g) cans of cherries, or 1lb frozen pitted cherries, thawed.
