I had a very welcome visit from Con Traas yesterday, the man behind The Apple Farm. We have been long time fans of his Karmine Apple Juice, but this time he dropped in some bottles of his sparkling apple juice (photo above), which is sold only at the farm shop in Tipperary.
It’s an absolutely delightful product – earthy and a perfect balance of sweetness and tartness.
In addition, he dropped in 6 kilos of plums, which are small and flavourful.
That means we will have a couple batches of plum ice cream coming up soon, and it should be a great flavour as we come out of summer.
I’m thinking a plum and brandy ice cream? I’ll post a recipe as soon as we’ve figured it out…
This list came to my attention via Cottage Smallholder who posted a list of the top UK and Irish blogs as ranked by Wikio for August, 2009. I thought it might be fun to pass it on, since there are many blogs on the list that are new to me (as well as a few of my favourites), and I hope you enjoy them!

Peter welcomed us to Dingle when we came and helped us with settling in and with setting up Murphys Ice Cream. He was outspoken, opinionated, and controversial at times, and we enjoyed his company. We will miss him.
Rest in peace.
