An Apple A Day

Appletree There aren’t too many fruits that seem to grow well in our damp climate, at least not in the garden of someone as horticulturally-challenged as myself. However, I do have some wonderful apple trees in the back of the house, and the apples this year are big and full of flavour.

ApplesSo far, we have just been eating them, but I think I may turn some of them into ice cream – perhaps an apple brandy or blackberry and apple flavour that we can serve in the shops for the autumn.

The birds around the place are quite happy at the moment to be sharing in the bounty, so I’d better get picking soon!

    I just tossed out 2 pounds of banged up Chilean Fuji apples. Can’t wait for your apple brandy recipe!

    I have apples aplenty too at the moment. I made an apple & lavender tart a few days back, maybe a flavour combination for you to consider?

    How about an “apple crumble” ice-cream, with a hint of cinnamon?
