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.
