With this dish I welcome autumn
Massive shopping centre opens round the corner from my flat so I hopped on a bus and escaped to the countryside for the day wondering round foraging .
I have been really sad that the blackberries one of my favourite fruits have not been plentiful this year with the huge amounts of rain and tiny amount of sun they have mostly been either watery or rotten . These were even guided by spiders.
Happily close to my favourite apple scrumping tree there were some lovely bushes with just enough blackberries to fill my bag and stain my lips purple.
The cows generously moved aside to let me get some cooking apples off the trees as well and today so today forgoing dinner in favour of pudding only , with a healthy dose of fruit it doesn’t seem too bad
I like making crumble in ramikins living alone it means I make portions sizes and the spares can go straight into the freezer
