The images show our foraged apples ,with one apple from our tree, foraged blackberries and the leftovers as I forgot to photograph the finished pie.  I never measure my crumble mix but I’ll try and give rough amounts, i’m a cook that goes on flavour and texture and rarely follow recipes. 

Ingredients

Apples 

Blackberries

Brown Sugar

Flour

Vitalite or vegan margarine

Coconut oil

All Spice

Half a Lemon

Regarding quantities, I’d say I used 1 1/2 cups of flour, 3/4 cup of sugar, 1/4 cup vitalite, 1/4 cup coconut oil for the crumble mix, you can use either white or brown sugar.  Combine in a bowl using a rubbing technique to produce breadcrumb like texture. 

For the fruit, there was about 6 cups of chopped apple and 2 cups of blackberries.

First peal and chop the apples, finely chop a teaspoon of lemon zest and juice the half lemon, once chopped coat in the lemon juice, put into a pan with a cup of brown sugar and 2 tsp of allspice, cover and heat until softened, add the blackberries once softened and stir for a minute then transfer into a baking dish.   Top with the crumble mix and bake for 20 or 30 minutes on 190 degrees, check for bubbling filling and light brown crumble. 

I served this with soy cream (non GMO of course)
