Sugar free apple and blackberry crumble

It’s that time of year when the hedges are plentiful with berries ready for Autumn such as the blackberry. Since my childhood I have enjoyed this delicious dessert of apple & blackberry crumble. So being sugar free I was concerned that I was no longer be able to savour this delicious dessert. While I was armed with a tub I set off in search to find some ripe plump blackberries. I enjoy picking blackberries, savouring the country air then heading back with a tub fall to the brim of tasty berries. Not forgetting my berry stained fingers.
