Blackberry-Basil Crumble

I made this recipe with blackberries I picked when I visited Arianna in Northampton a few weeks ago. The blackberry/basil combination is really good and definitely different! This is adapted from a recipe in one of my favorite books, "Animal Vegetable Miracle" by Barbara Kingsolver. Enjoy!
  • 4 cups blackberries (optional: use half blackberries and half apples - peeled and cut into small chunks)
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 large handful of basil leaves, chopped
  • 1⁄4 cup honey – or more, depending on tartness of your berries

Preheat oven to 400. Combine the above in an oven-proof casserole dish, mix
and set aside.

  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 3 heaping tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 stick cold butter
  • Pinch of salt

Cut butter into flour and sugar, then rub with your fingers to make a chunky, crumbly mixture (not uniform). Sprinkle it over the top of the fruit, bake 30 minutes until golden and bubbly.
