Preheat the oven to 150 C / Gas 2.
Put the diced pear into a saucepan with 2 tablespoons sugar and cover. Allow to stew gently for half an hour over a low heat, stirring occasionally. Check that the fruit is cooked by inserting a fork, they should be soft. Transfer the pears to a baking dish and set aside.
In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, 75g caster sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and butter until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Cover the stewed pears with the crumble topping, without pressing down.
Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes or until the crumble is golden brown and crunchy. Remove from the oven and serve warm.
This is a really nice and easy recipe that we made using the left over pears from the garden. So easy that the older children made it themselves and the 2 and 3 year olds made it with minimal support. We also tried adding some cranberries to add some colour. The whole thing was very sweet but delicious!! - 23 Oct 2015
