Mulberry Apple Crumble Recipe

This sweet berry crumble recipe comes from Executive Chef Reyna Venegas and her team in the Dining Hall at The Ranch. The 10 mulberry trees at the farm are having a prolific year, and the rains have quenched them to grow exceptionally plump, sweet berries. You could substitute blackberries for mulberries. Enjoy this delicious summery treat.
