These easy, no fail, luscious port berries are delicious with a macadamia crumble. They are my go to dessert if we are having friends over or if I need comfort food. Make in individual ramekins or in a pie dish. They are low FODMAP, gluten and lactose free. Serve alone, with cream, custard or icecream.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 50 minutes
Serves: 6

For the port berry mixture
500g frozen strawberries
300g frozen blueberries
200g frozen raspberries
300ml port
3/4 cups sugar
1 lemon, finely grated rind and juiced
1 tsp cinnamon

For the macadamia crumble
2 1/2 cups macadamias
75g butter or margarine (use nuttelex if lactose free)
1/4 cup caster or raw sugar

  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees.

  • For the port berry mixture
  • Put the strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, port, sugar, cinnamon, 1 tbsp of lemon rind and 1 tbsp of the lemon juice in a frypan on high heat. Bring to the boil, stirring to combine until the sugar dissolves.
  • Turn the frypan down and simmer for 20-25 minutes until the fluid has reduced by half. Add more lemon juice to taste, if required. Turn off heat and set aside.

    For the macadamia crumble mixture
  • In the meantime, while the port berry mixture is reducing, lightly roast the macadamias on a frypan on high for 3-4 minutes until golden. Set aside to cool.
  • Put macadamias in a blender and pulse until a rough crumb is formed. Take care not to over blend as the macadamias will turn into a wet paste. Transfer into a bowl and use your fingertips to massage the butter into the crumbs.
  • Add the sugar into the crumb and stir to combine. Set aside.

    Assembling the port berry macadamia crumble
  • Spoon the port berry mixture into 6 ramekins or a pie dish lined with baking paper. Evenly sprinkle the macadamia crumb over the port berry mixture.

  • Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, until the macadamia crumb is golden.
  • Serve alone, with custard, cream or ice cream.

  • Substitute the frozen strawberries, blueberries and raspberries with 500g frozen mixed berries, 300g strawberries and 2 diced Granny Smith apples. Cook the apples in a frypan with 1 tbsp of water for 4 minutes before adding the berries. Please note that blackberries and apple are not low FODMAP.
