  • 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.

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