Ingredients
 
Fruit
6 pears, cored and diced
1 orange,  juiced and zested
1/4-1/2 cup frozen blueberries, thawed

Crumble
1 cup hazelnut/almond meal
1 tsp cinnamon (verum)
1 tsp ginger powder

1/8 tsp vanilla powder
2 tbsps butter, cubed

To Make

Preheat oven to 180 ̊C.  Place pears, orange juice and zest in a greased glass baking dish and stir gently to combine.  Bake covered in the oven until a fork goes through the pears nicely (approx. 40-60min).  Meanwhile place crumble ingredients in a small mixing bowl rubbing butter into the ingredients with your fingertips.  Stir the blueberries into the pear mixture and sprinkle the crumble evenly over the top.  Return to the oven uncovered for a further 10-20min until golden.  Remove from oven and serve with a generous helping of real cream.
