 Apple Cranberry Crumble

 Ingredients:

  • 2 ½ cup fresh or frozen cranberries
  • ½ cup Cinnamon Pear Balsamic Vinegar
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon table salt
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 3 ½ pounds sweet apples (6-7 medium), peeled, cored, and cut into ¼-inch-thick slices

FOR TOPPING (or use your favourite rolled oats topping)

  • 1 ½ cup flour
  • ¾  cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 ½  tsp cinnamon
  • ½  tsp salt
  • 2/3  cup unsalted butter, cut into chunks

Bring cranberries, Cinnamon Pear Balsamic Vinegar, water and 2 Tbsp sugar to a boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. As soon as berries begin to pop, take saucepan off the heat and allow the berries to macerate in the vinegar mixture for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, mix ½ cup sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, ¼ teaspoon salt, and cornstarch in large microwave-safe bowl.  Add apples and toss to coat. Microwave on high, stirring every 3 minutes, for 10-14 minutes or until the edges of the apples are slightly translucent and liquid has thickened. Cool to room temperature (30 minutes).

After 30 minutes drain the cranberries, reserving the liquid.  In a large bowl gently fold together the apples and the cranberries. Put into oven proof dish, 9" size, and drizzle with some of the reserved vinegar mixture, adding more if extra tartness is desired.

Move oven rack to the bottom and place a foil lined baking sheet on the bottom rack. Preheat oven to 350°.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt and butter.  Cut in with a pastry blender or rub with your fingers until the mixture forms small lumps. Sprinkle topping over the filling.

Bake on bottom rack until juices bubble, 45 to 55 minutes, or until apples are tender when tested with a wooden toothpick. If top browns too quickly, cover loosely with foil.

Set on rack, uncovered, to cool for 2 to 3 hours.
