Recipe: Peach And Pistachio Crumble


Peach, pistachio and elderflower is such a refreshing combination of flavours and works really well in this crumble recipe. Accompanied by our cheeky shortcut of a crumble this is divine. Not only that... but the leftover poaching liquid from the peaches is great if you reduce it by half, chill it and then served with lemonade.
