  • 12 ounces (about 1.5 cups) fresh blackberries washed, you can substitute the same amount unsweetened frozen blackberries (thawed)
  • 4 cups apples peeled, cored, use a good variety for baking like Fuji, Granny Smith or Gala
  • 2 tablespoons granulated white sugar I recommend 2-4 tablespoons, amount to taste depending on the sweetness of the fruit
