Apple compote & black pepper crumble

Apple compote & black pepper crumble

A treat to take you back to when you were a kid !
The perfect recipe to highlight the simplest fruit.



  • Peal the apples and the rhubarb. Chop them coarsely. 
  •  In a pot on high heat, start a caramel with the sugar and a bit of water. When brown, add a bit more water to stop it from burning and add the fruits. 
  • Stir it together to let the caramel melt and let it cook for half an hour, for some of the water to evaporate. 
  • Meanwhile, in a bowl, mix all the ingredients for the crumble (the flour, oil, honey, salt and pepper).
  • Pour this mix in a pan on medium heat. Cook it while stirring it to get it caramelized and crunchy.
  • when it's done, put it on the side. 
  • Back to the apple compote! Cover it and let it cook for 30 minutes more.
    Don't forget to stir it from time to time.
  • When it's done, let it rest on the side until it's completely cooled down. 
  • Now you just have to fill your bowls with this apple & rhubarb compote and cover it with some crumble. Enjoy!
