Winter crumbles

I have to confess that I prefer most of my food fairly plain and unadulterated.  Apple crumble is a case in point, because I normally like to keep it plain.
However, I've spent the last two weeks being ill with flu and a chest infection, so I decided I needed a few more vitamins to fight off the winter germs.  We have got a wealth of red fruit in the freezer, just waiting to be put into pies and crumbles, so I decided on a change.
I sprinkled a load of sugar on to taste.
The red fruit adds a nice pink colour to the mixture.
I included coarse oatmeal in the crumble to add a bit of bite:
The result was pleasantly tart, and a very vivid red colour!
