I just popped one of these in the oven and so I thought I’d write the recipe up while I still have the luscious smells wafting up from the kitchen and before I need to run downstairs and make custard for the girls.
The blackberries are just about from the allotment. My new allotment neighbour has decided to pull up all the bramble on his side and instead plant some mulberry bushes. So we grabbed what was left before he burned the lot. I’m a little sad as I loved my protective bramble border. But he means well and hopefully he’ll share the mulberries when they fruit!
This really is a lovely autumnal tart which is well worth the effort of making pastry. If you are a runner then see my post on a pastry making running schedule! It fits incredibly well and is my little post run treat. I’m running for a marathon you see and not to lose weight.
Instead of blackberries you could use sloe berries, apples, apricots, plums, or a combination or whatever you fancy. Just make up the weight noted in the recipe so you have the right balance of fruit and crumble topping!
