This was just a five minute pick up of windfalls, 5kg of apples waiting to be turned into some apple wine by Lovely Hubby. We are trying to vary what we make with all these lovely rosy apples, up to now we've made jelly, wine and crumbles, and now that the cooking apples are dropping their trees it will be time to turn to even more crumbles and lots of pies for the freezer.
So many people are getting in touch to say that they too are having bumper crops of apples. It truly is a good year for British apples, which makes it such a shame that the supermarkets are still full of imported apples :-(
If you don't have a tree yourself it would make real sense now to search out a farm shop or Farmers Market and source your apples directly from the folk that have grown them, there will be some brilliant bargains to be had this year.
