Wild Berry Crumble

This Wild Berry Crumble is an absolute delight to eat on a cold autumn evening. You can utilise any of the berries & fruits you find whilst out foraging to add a new element to the dish.

Ingredients for 1 crumble (to serve 4):

  • 20g oats
  • 50g flour
  • 2tbsp butter
  • 1/2tsp hogweed seed powder (not needed if you can’t find)
  • 1/2tsp cinnamon powder
  • 50g brown sugar
  • 2 cooking apples – peeled, cored & chopped in to 1cm cubes
  • Any fruit you have, damsons, blackberries, raspberries etc – stoned & chopped up finely
  • 50g white sugar
  • Juice of 1 lemon

Method for making our Wild Berry Crumble:

  1. In a pan place your wild fruits and cook for 5 minutes until soft add the sugar and lemon juice & cook for a minute longer until it’s all nice and warm
  2. In a separate pan soften the chopped apple for 2 minutes (we want it warm but not mushy)
  3. Whilst the apple is cooking put the oats, butter, flour & hogweed seed, cinnamon & brown sugar in a bowl and mix well – pop on a baking tray & chuck under a hot grill to toast it (about 3 minutes until browning on top.
  4. All of the elements are now read
    – First, put some of the fruit jam you’ve made on the plate
    – then top with the heated apple bits
    – top with the crumble mix you’ve made

Finish off with cream or custard to your liking – I actually like to put a little salt on mine too.
