Day 282 - Apple Tart


The apples are still dropping off the trees with gay abandon, and I really am trying to use up as many as I can. 

With the freezer pretty full to capacity we are trying to eat what I make while it is fresh.  Although I have just discovered another box of jam jars that are crying out to be filled with either chutney or some more jam ... not that we really need any more, but it would use them up and fill up the Preserves Cupboard even more.  I have just over half a bag of preserving sugar left, so maybe a bit of both is on the cards   :-)


This weekends offering, to be eaten with cups of tea and coffee in between creosoting planks of wood for the workshop cladding, has been this rather large Apple Tart. 

Ooh look there is some missing already!!


It went down VERY well ... with the last of the squirty cream.

Well it would be rude not to sample the creation while it was still warm wouldn't it   ;-)

Today is a No Spend Day

    1. Guess what I found one of those gadgets at the car boot today for £1.00 ideal for when I buy all the reduced apples.

    3. It's a brilliant gadget. Peels, cores and slices all by turning the handle. I think mine cost £15, so that's a great find SL :-)

  2. You may have already done this. Tip from one of my daughters. Spare jars - make some more Tomato sauce for Bol/Caseroles etc. Seal hot like jams and jelly's. Put a circle of greaseproof in before the lid. You will hear them seal with the usual pop!!

  3. You need a dehydrator. Great way to store apples and all sorts of things when the freezer fills up.

  4. Love your apple peeler. I spent ages hand peeling apples yesterday to make chutney. I will make another batch next week. Tomorrow, we are making tarte tatin which is an upside down apple tart made with slices of apple which have been caramelised. Yours looks good!! We took apples to the beach today for our picnic and we still have dozens and dozens left! Can you store them Sue, if do, how please?

    1. You can store any absolutely perfect apples. Individually wrapped (newspaper is ideal) in a single layer in a cool, dark place.
