What Do You Grow to Eat?

Spring has sprung in the Northern Hemisphere. That means seeds, sowing and seedlings! And as the conservatory is still not warm enough overnight, everything is in one corner of my dining room!

The picture below shows you an Aji Amarillo seedling (+Joy Stewart), one of my favourite Peruvian chillies. Every summer, we grow a variety of chillies, as many of you will know: hot ones, very hot ones and the weird and wonderful. This year, however, I've decide to restrict myself to just half a dozen varieties. More on them later in the season, when they are fruiting.

Besides that, I just sowed some green and purple tomatillos and epazote a couple of days ago, and coming from South East Asia, I have lots of SEAsian herbs, as well as Japanese Shiso.

And then, there'll be the usual cucumbers, tomatoes and aubergines, by which time, we'll probably run our of garden space!

What do you like to grow in the summer?

(Click link below for recipe.)

I am admittedly not much of a baker. And even for a non-baker like me, to call a crisp/crumble/cobbler type thingy "easy" is almost redundant.

This is also admittedly not the best crisp/crumble/cobbler type thingy recipe out there. But the point is that even if it isn't, and if you've never tried making one, you'll probably be so pleasantly surprised at how easy, adaptable, and yummy this oven hack's recipe turns out that you'll add these thingies to your regular repertoire.

The general rule to these things is that there's some fruit filling, and there's some kind of streusel topping, and the ratio of one to the other is up to you. I'm a roughly 60/40 fruit/topping type gal, which works out to about a 2-inch layer of fruit to a roughly 2/3-inch layer of topping (the fruit will reduce and thicken a bit).

If you're in a real hurry, you can buy a can of pie filling, and mix it with half fresh or frozen berries. A little pinch of salt mixed in helps to round out the flavors and soften the saccharin sweetness of canned pie filling.

The streusel topping can be made and refrigerated up to a week in advance.
