I love the simplicity and memories that come with making a crumble. I learned to make this recipe from my husband when we were first married and it has become a family tradition gather in the kitchen and make this at least once a week. Im using Stemilt pears and apples in the recipe, because I love the fact that the Mathison family, who owns Stemilt, has orchards located on the same grounds that their ancestors homesteaded back in 1893.
