This rounds off what has been a bit of a food week on MaltaInsideOut; sorry, we can’t get enough of Malta’s strawberries right now! Our excuse? The season, like our spring, is all too short. So, if you did go to the Strawberry Fair Sunday 10th, in Mgarr, or are wondering what you can do with the enormous, cheap punnets you can buy right now, try this: Ruby Red Strawberry Crumble, by our guest food writer Miriam Sorrell. It’s the ideal Sunday lunch dessert!
This isn’t any old crumble; last weekend this very recipe was chosen to feature in the brochure of the New York Vegetarian Festival 2010. A Malta-based blogger and foodie gets on the international radar with a recipe that’s redolent of the best of Malta’s fare. It puts us all on the map and not as a blip of islands just north of the Libya No-Fly zone!
We may know crumbles, or crisps are they’re called on the N. American continent, with apples, but this is a twist on a firm favourite. As one person commented about this recipe:”Now, why in 20 years did I not think of a strawberry crumble?” The humble crumble just got seriously delicious. And what better way to use the glut of Maltese strawberries? The recipe is here, on Miriam’s blog Mouthwateringvegan.com.
