Wiki says, "A crumble is a dish of British origin that can be made in a sweet or savoury version, depending on ingredients used. A sweet variety usually contains stewed fruit topped with a crumbly mixture of fat (usually butter), flour, and sugar." What is different from my beloved said Pie?

Hungry for answers.

Crumble does not have a pastry base, like a pie does and the top is crumbly rather than pastry.

That one looks like it has oats in the crumble too.

I think you have cobbler in the states - well; the mixture on the top of crumble is the same as in cobbler but spread out fairly evenly rather than in balls.  crumble is ace.  rhubarb crumble and custard is the comfort food of the gods.

Cobbler, something to do with shoes I think? Anyway, today had to be a cobbler myself, as my work shoes suddenly decided that they were soulless, or at least one was sole less, so had to use a little contact adhesive and a few small brads to "persuade" the heel and upper to be good friends, or at least to stick around each other though thick and thin.

As to pie, I do like a good shepherds pie myself, very nice it is. Rhubarb pie too is nice.

You are quite right, my man. But my tea is English, properly brewed from loose tea in a pot (a Brown Betty, to be exact) already hot and served only with milk.

I have been drinking tea like this for 35 years, ever since I lived in University Village within Houston and walked into a shop named "British Market"

My latest tea of favor came via a CARE package from Sheepy. The package included proper biscuits of several types, a tea from Belfast named "Punjava," a box Of Earl Grey from Twinings, a box of P.G. Tips and a new market brand, London Cuppa' which is a delightful "every day" tea. I was so enamored of this last tea I order a kilo.

Any questions, my dear boorish lout?

WAIT! Exoneration? I am typing this from my kitchen closet:

English Classic Tea (with a piccy of Big Ben on da box!)
Chai Tea

Harrisons & Crosfield
Classic English Tea Merchants
Classic Earl Grey Tea
Imported from England

Plus a dozen or so assorted herbal tea concoctions.

Nyah, nyah!

In order to be totally cleared of the embarrassment, one must not use tea bags. They are so "lower class." But on occasion we all sacrifice tradition for convenience.

But alas, the Americanization of teas purchased from Harrisons & Crosfield is complete. Their website is described their teas thus: "Harrisons & Crosfield teas are unique as they are blended in England to renowned British tea industry quality levels & American tastes ..."

And this "Twinings English Classic Cold Brewed" just does not sound British. No way, no how.

OH! The ignomy of it all, the shame!

(ignomy - Shakespearean spelling - not the new-fangled cra*py way the pundits have abused it)

Exoneration? - NAY! I say, NAY!

Excriment-aion - most likely. (That is the pun in this post)

And there I was today, going past Entyce ( formerly Tea Blenders) and admiring the tea dust emanating out from the extractor fans.

Tea, tea, tea, it just gets on my nerves! To quote from a favourite OTR show I used to listen to - The Men From The Ministry.

I do miss Springers.

Anyhow, I rather like Earl Grey, and am not a fan of most tea bags, as I prefer to use them as firelighters ( soak used ones in paraffin and light), having been exposed to some truly horrible substances masquerading as tea in the past. Worst tasted like pineapple, though that could be because everything had pineapple added, as they were in season and the catering staff had a 10 ton load to use up before it went bad.

I do like a nice coffee, fresh roast is best, but if not then a granule, Nescafe Classic or Jacobs.

Worst is a well known brand catering quality coffee - to make one cup I would add 5 dessertspoons of brown powder/coffee to hot water, stir, add sugar and milk, and still it did not taste like coffee. I did find one person who liked it, strange that, you cannot account for some people's tastes ( or lack therof), though it did make a pretty fair grinding compound.

--------------------

Thanks for pointing this out, Demo. I do see Geezer's caveman thinking style.

As for whether I can boil a decent cup of tea, well pardon me, sir, BUT I believe you are the one who cannot get the water hot enough, miserable Scottish outcast. At your home, the altitude is 680 meters or 2231 feet. I live at 265 meters (869 feet) Thus to make a proper cup of tea I need heat my water to the astounding temperature of 210.460 F, (99.145 C) whereas you, the skirt wearing crotchety old man in the Selkirk's, must only heat your pot to the ridiculously low temperature 208.015 F (97.786 C)

Considering this, it is self-evident that tea I make will be much, more close to a proper cup of tea than anything said Geezer makes.

(who says we are not scientists here???)

Besides, has anyone ever tried to swallow a mouthful of the despised, contemptible, mean, vile, Scottish Breakfast Tea??? It is the most unpleasant tea to which I have ever subjected myself. It is what I imagine it would be like taste the fresh cut wool from the loins of an un-neutered sire ram. The Scottish Breakfast tea was available for a short while several years ago in a red box but Twinings had the good sense to discontinue this travesty. Taylors of Harrogate has yet to see the error of their ways.

And the two of you - FOR SHAME! & Tisk, tisk. - trying to outdo the master. Hurmph! The sink-holes riddling the karsts of your minds has caused your brains to become like Swiss cheese. Spelunking in those karts would like be wading in a cesspool

I am in Scotland this week and boy, can they make a cup of tea. They use actual leaves and not scummy tea bags. The most important thing about Tea making is the water and in the North of this wonderful isle it is the best. I climbed Ben Nevis this week and Tea tastes so much better when you've earnt it. So JimBob you need to climb a few mountains in order to appreciate real Tea.

My mum was a true officianado of the art. Her fav. was Typhoo - and never in bags.

On one famous occasion in the South of France, she was so pissed off because she couldn't get a decent cup of tea that she went behind the bar in a cafe and showed the bartender how to make it!

I imagine there was still a bit of snow on Ben Nevis this year. It's a dangerous place. The weather can get very ugly in no time at all.

We have had beautiful weather in Scotland this week. I had a 180 degree view at the top of Ben and it was sunny for 60% of the climb. No Snow at all due to climate change. I have a large blister and my muscles don't work any more!

Well, a real geeholergist would know that I live in "the gem state" (unlike "the bull-puckey state" aka Texarse) and that there are a lot of mines here, so I always descend to 50 feet above sea level at tea time.

whereas you, the skirt wearing crotchety old man in the Selkirk's, must only heat your pot to the ridiculously low temperature 208.015 F (97.786 C)



Well, a real geeholergist would know that I live in "the gem state" (unlike "the bull-puckey state" aka Texarse) and that there are a lot of mines here, so I always descend to 50 feet above sea level at tea time.

The Lone Star State, for your information.

And how can Scottish Breakfast tea be even compared to any other real black tea??

What about this Texas policewoman? Just a Dolly P. wannabe?

Hot off the wire!

8-12-2010
Austin, TX
Reuters
By Tom Jones

Speaking at his home, the the Speaker of the House's Apartment in the Capital of Texas building,
JimBob was asked about the article concerning a imaginary "feud" between his state and the state of Idaho which appeared in the notoriously erroneous "Punning Times," also know a the flagship name in liberal Yellow Journalism. We quote the most cogent of his very erudite comments.
 
"Now, the nuclear option was not on the board because the sanctions are working. Yet the interference of the liberal press in this matter is causing concern to our Department of State. We disavow all actions and libelous statements made by the worrisome rag and reject any unilateral action on our part.

"We obviously are superior to the man in the Catholic school-girl uniform skirt. We need not defend ourselves."


BESIDES

Demo has too much time on his hands! Doesn't he have a job or a hobby?  What about getting him a pet fish? Can he be trusted with the care of a dog? Bloody hell, what is wrong with this agitator?????? 

It is time for us to seek a home for this elderly, misanthropic troublemaker.

This just in from CNN!
Friday the 13th, 2010

JimBob arrested outside his House/Home/Apartment for outrageously libelous statements made in the press against St. Demografx, the very first individual ever canonized while still alive.

Police Staff Sgt. M. I. Bigg, Austin PD CKU (Carnal Knowledge Unit), shown above, says she has nothing but contempt for JimBob, who refused to show a good ol' boy Texan-resisting-arrest struggle which she patiently awaited while JB simply allowed the strip-search procedure to go without a struggle. Harrumph!
