Photo Article from the Welsh hovel - blackberry and apple crumble

I am working like a demon picking blackberries with Joshua in order to produce as much blackberry cordial as possible. On Saturday we spent an hour picking at our two favourite sites and the amount we produced generated 600 ml of cordial which is enough to make three litres of ice cream. But with both Sharestock and Joshua’s birthday party looming I need about 6 litres, plus some for normal family use. And fear not there will be other ice creams at both events (lavender and rhubarb & ginger). So it is all hands to the coalface.

Having cooked the blackberries and drained off what is the cordial you are left with a blackberry mush which still has enough juice in it to mix perfectly with some cooking apples from the tree at the edge of the vegetable patch and, hey presto, blackberry and apple crumble which tastes as good as it looks.
