ZWT6 Britain. Nick Nairn likes using finely cut oats in this crumble topping, but you can also grind rolled oats in the food processor to achieve the same texture. A generous amount of butter mixed into the oats makes the crumble especially light and crisp. Recipe by Nick Nairn on http://www.foodandwine.com.
