Putting the crumble together
Place the Fruits and juices at the bottom of a large baking dish (see note 1). Completely cover the fruits with the crumbles then bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until the crumbs look golden brown. Eat warm.
I used a large round Ceramic dish but your can use any type of baking dish you prefer - ceramic, glass or even metal. I do not recommend using springform pans for this recipe.
