Berried Treasure Pots (aka mixed berry crumbles)

Apple and apple and berries/sultanas/rhubarb crumble are pretty regular in our house and the boys do, on occasion, help me make the crumble. This allowed them to do the lot and they were lovely. That said, they were ridiculously sweet and I would reduce the sugar mixed with the berries by a third, if not a half.
