Apple & Triple Berry Crumble

This afternoon we made an apple and triple berry crumble.  It's actually a triple berry crumble recipe, we just added the leftover Honeycrisp apples we didn't use in the apple pies we made a couple weeks ago.  The once crispy apples were reaching the end of their shelf life so it was use 'em or lose 'em.  So we cut them up and added them to the berries.


4 1/2 cups berries (fresh or frozen, if frozen, thaw and discard excess liquid)
4 tablespoons white sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups rolled oats
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 1/2 cups butter


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl, gently toss berries and sugar, set aside.

Although we added the few apples we had left, we didn't cut back on the berries or add any additional sugar.

In a separate bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, oats, cinnamon and nutmeg.

Cut in butter until crumbly.

Press half of the mixture in the bottom of a 9x13 pan.  

Cover with berries.  Sprinkle remaining crumble mixture over the berries.  

Bake 30-40 minutes until berries are bubbly and topping is golden brown.  Serve warm with vanilla bean ice cream, or whipped cream, or cream!  Or eat it plain.  It was delish.

Note:  If you add apples, you need to bake for an additional 15 minutes to ensure the apples are cooked through.

The best kitchen helper/partner in the whole world!  

Til next time ~ find your joy!
