    Seriously Fruity Hedgerow Crumble

    A most delicious blackberry and apple crumble. Best made immediately after picking the blackberries and even better if someone gives you windfall apples. The crumble has a good texture by the addition of porrage oats and demerara sugar.

    What makes it the ultimate summer Seriously From Waitrose dessert?

    Just so delicious and a reminder of summer walks in the country picking fruit from the hedgerow!
