Here in Cornwall the blackberries are just starting, and there are apples to scrump from the track down to the beach - good for counteracting all the pasties and ice cream we've been eating 😬 - so it seems a good time to mention that:

- apples may seem everyday, but they contain thousands of phytochemicals which work synergistically, boosting each other's power. The vitamin C content in an apple isn't very high, for instance, but is worth three 500mg vitamin C pills thanks to the other micronutrients that come with it. And a fresh-picked apple is worth two cold-storage supermarket apples, so now is a good time to be eating them.

- the rich colour of blackberries and other berries indicates high concentrations of antioxidant, antiinflammatory, anticancer polyphenols. No chance of getting scurvy with these around 💜

If you are after a wheat and/or dairy free crumble, I love oats and almond flour for the topping, and Alpro soya custard to go with it.
