    Oh No! Something went wrong and I'm the one who submitted the recipe. I made this for my family after picking a few cups of fresh berries and it was a disaster! My mom said it's due to the humidity we are facing (the temp here has been 29 but 44 with the humidex). I should have added less butter to the crumble mixture because it made everything a soggy mess. So please add a bit of butter at a time, just until the mixture holds together.  -  31 Jul 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
