inserting a knife).

  • Use fresh strawberries and apples if you can, frozen berries will work as well but the filling will be quite watery when cooked

  • Other summer fruits that work well are blackberries, blueberries, cherries, peaches and raspberries

  • Adjust the spices to suit your taste, I like a subtle hint of spice so as not to overpower the caramel flavour the coconut sugar gives the crumble topping but you do you...
