Bye Bye Berries

Raspberry season came a little later than usual this year. There is a marvellous Pick Your Own farm near me that sells wonderful fruit at affordable prices, much cheaper than the supermarket, and today was their last picking day. I managed to pick several pounds a couple of weeks ago, which I turned into jam. I didn't expect to have time to pick any more so today's harvest is an extra treat.


It took a while to fill my punnet, lots of rummaging between canes and under leaves, like trying to find a t-shirt your size in Primark!

But while one crop is finishing, another is growing tall and golden, ready to become bread to slather with zingy raspberry jam.

I enjoyed some of the berries for tea with some yoghurt but I can't quite decide what to do with the rest. I do have a craving for Apple and Raspberry crumble, but what else?
Any suggestions?
