Top Tip:

If you are not a berry fan, try increasing the apple content – it works just as well!  

Some people prefer one type of berry rather than mixed – think pure strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, or blackberries.  

You don’t need to use granny smith apples, pink ladies, golden delicious and royal gala taste great too.
