This delectable crumble is a wonderful way to enjoy the the autumn harvest of apples and pears. Sweetened only with fruit and a little honey, it will appeal to all three doshas and can be served warm or cool.

Vatas especially will enjoy it warm with a little cream. For added richness, enjoy the warming touch of a tad more ginger powder.

Kaphas can skip the cream and eat warm or cool.

Serve cool to your favorite Pitta who may also appreciate a dollop of ice cream on top.
