Y'know, it's strange. Apple crumble was a creation of the Ministry of Food during the War; it was designed as a way to save on the sugar and pastry that formed pie crusts. Unlike most of the other things they dreamt up (powdered egg, anyone?), this one was actually edible, so it stuck. Iunno, I just find it quite heartwarming that a product of such a dark time is still alive and kicking four hundred and thirty years later.
