I don't use tinned apples, I core and slice fresh red or green apples on my slinky machine and then simmer with some sugar, sultanas and brown sugar until soft. I also don't hand rub the crumble mix, I put it all in the food processor until mixed; it makes a finer crumble but is much quicker. If I have any, I sprinkle some mixed frozen berries on top as well.
