Recipe: Apple Crumble Dessert From Home-Canned Apples In Syrup

by Texas Homesteader 

Last fall I was blessed with several large boxes of apples from my aunt’s apple tree.  I wanted to make sure they didn’t go to waste. So I canned apples in syrup, applesauce, apple butter and apple cider, dehydrated apples and made and canned apple pie filling.  FOR WEEKS!  Now I get to enjoy the fruits of my labor (oh my, I said ‘Fruits” of my labor. See what I did there??)

My favorite thing to make with these preserved apples is apple crumble dessert using the apple slices in light syrup.  It’s delicious and comes together quickly for a delicious dessert when company surprises you with a visit.  Bada-boom, bada-bing and dessert is being served!  Looks and tastes like you toiled away in the kitchen for hours.  (shhhh…)

If you have canned apples in simple syrup, here's a delicious apple crumble dessert recipe that comes together quickly. #TexasHomesteader

Simple Ingredients

First I pull out my ingredients:  a pint of home-canned apples in syrup,  all-purpose flour, quick-cooking oats (I usually blend about 1/2 quick cooking and 1/2 old fashioned oats),  brown sugar, cloves, ground nutmeg (I often substitute cinnamon) a pinch of salt, vanilla extract, softened butter and chopped nuts. I prefer pecans since we have some amazing pecan trees right here on our property.

Easy Assembly

In a medium bowl mix the dry ingredients, cut in softened butter and put bowl aside.  Drain the canned apples, reserving the syrup and pour drained apples in an approximately 6×6 casserole dish.  Sprinkle 1/2 of the oat mixture over the apples and fold to coat.

Pour the reserved syrup over the apples and top with the remaining oat mixture.  I like to dot the top of the crumble with small pats of butter. But that’s just my preference & not really part of the recipe.  Then I pop the casserole dish into a 350-degree oven for 30 – 35 minutes, or until the top is golden brown.

No really, that’s it!  Hey, if a recipe isn’t delicious, easy, quick AND adaptable it doesn’t hang around long in my kitchen.  This one’s a keeper!

Perfection!  And making this home-made dessert is good for the budget since it’s using home-canned apples and standard pantry ingredients.  If you’ve canned apples in syrup and you’re wondering what you can make that’s delicious and quick – give it a try.

    Thank you for sharing your recipe! We canned apples for the first time this year and now I need recipes! With a winter weather advisory outside seems like a perfect night to warm up the oven and bake something we grew and canned ourselves! 🙂 Yum, can’t wait!
