Mixed Berry & Apple Crumble – Edward Hayden & Derval O’Rourke

Enjoy Edward Hayden’s easy to make Mixed Berry and Apple Crumble Tart recipe, as seen at Savour Kilkenny with our Brand Ambassador Derval O’Rourke. Edward says: “A crumble is a very traditional dessert but one which is always very popular. In this iteration, it’s like a cross between a crumble and a tart but it’s gorgeous for sure! This dessert can be frozen very successfully and retained until required at a later stage. There are a couple of stages in its preparation but it definitely worth it.”
