AW promotion: Paul Freary explains how to make this delicious dessert

AW‘s Paul Freary talks you through how to make an apple and cherry crumble, using US Montmorency Tart Cherries.

You’ll need:
• 250g Montmorency US Tart Cherries
• 750g apples
• 2 tablespoons cherry juice
• 3 tablespoons apricot jam
• 100g flour
• 140g porridge oats
• 100g brown sugar
• 100g butter
• 2 tablespoons golden syrup

There are more than 50 studies supporting the potential health benefits of Montmorency tart cherries – from inflammation and exercise recovery, to sleep. Turns out, the tart taste is an indication of the amount of anthocyanins inside. These flavonoid compounds are behind the sourness, intense red colour and potential health-promoting properties, like reducing muscle soreness after exercise, easing arthritis pain and enhancing heart health. They may even help you sleep better at night because they contain melatonin, a natural hormone that regulates our sleep cycle.
