REDCURRANT AND TAAYBERRY CRUMBLE BARS

Redcurrants and Tayberries Recipe

Tayberries and redcurrants are both delicious fruits that bring a unique flavour to any dish, especially in the case of redcurrant and tayberry crumble bars.

Redcurrants are small, tart berries that are packed with vitamin C and antioxidants. They add a tangy and slightly sweet taste to your treats, balancing out the flavours perfectly.

On the other hand, tayberries are a cross between a raspberry and a blackberry grown in the UK, resulting in a delightful combination of sweetness and tartness. These juicy berries are known for their vibrant reddish-purple colour and rich berry flavour.

When incorporated into crumble bars, both redcurrants and tayberries provide a burst of freshness and a delightful texture. Whether you’re a fan of tart or sweet flavours, these berries offer a delightful palate experience that is sure to please your taste buds.

Top Tips

Mix the berries with sugar and cornflour/starch to help thicken the filling.

Remove the excess juice.

Layer the berry filling evenly over the crust to ensure every bite is bursting with fruitiness.

Make sure the base layer of crumble is thicker than the topping.

Allow the crumble bars to cool completely before cutting into squares to ensure they hold their shape.

For an extra touch of sweetness, drizzle a simple icing glaze over the cooled bars.
