And as a thank you (some may say bribe), here is Jake's epic winter apple crumble recipe to help you celebrate our wonderful British apple season and get us ready for the shortening days and frosty mornings. Custard or vanilla crème fraîche, oooooh the decisions....

 Janine actually made this one and if she can follow the recipe, anyone can!

    ▪    Cut up cold butter into small squares and place in mixing bowl.
    ▪    Add flour, mixed spice and remaining sugar into mixing bowl.
