Apple and Blackberry Crumble

Apple and Blackberry Crumble


The boys are back in long trousers, the shorts packed away and they are back to school and routine. I do like this time of year and I love our now annual picking of blackberries in our garden and using them to create something delicious. I received a gift of some cooking apples from a local apple tree too. It’s a showery and windy day today so a perfect opportunity to fill the house with the delicious aroma of apple and blackberry crumble in the oven.
