Ingredients

  • 600 g pkg frozen mixed berries
  • unpeeled apples, cored and coarsely grated
  • thick slices stale, crusty italian bread
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

Instructions

  • Stir berries with apples in slow-cooker insert. Smooth out into an even layer.
  • Break bread into pieces and place in a food processor. Pulse until small crumbs form. They should measure 2 cups. In a large bowl, stir bread crumbs with sugar, cinnamon, ginger, salt and butter until combined. Sprinkle crumb mixture evenly over berry mixture.
  • Place a clean tea towel, folded in half, between the pot and the lid of the slow cooker to absorb moisture. Cover and cook on high until fruit is hot, about 1 1/2 hours. Serve warm with ice cream.

Testing Tip

The peel on the apples contains natural pectin, which helps thicken this dessert.
