an apple a day
Posted in All posts on 27th September 2013
Summer days spent on the beach and fabulous seafood meals now seem like a distant dream. It's
incredible how things change in just a few short weeks! One of the great consolations of the end of
Summer is the beginning of Autumn. The closing in of the day brings with it the comfort of a golden
landscape, with bright flashes of red from rose hips, hawthorns and the russet glow of apples on a tree.

There is nothing like an apple for ease of eating. I keep some in the car for the inevitable traffic jams, we
munch away, savouring the sugar hit and the juiciness of a crunchy English apple, and all I have to do is
pop the cores into the compost bin when we are at home.
Several kind friends have generously shared their garden harvests of wonderful Bramley Apples and I
pass vast quantities of wild crab apples just waiting to be picked whilst I am walking the dog.
I turned to my favourite cookbooks for inspiration to use this wonderful glut, and have plans for apple
cakes and chutneys galore. I am going to try Sarah Raven's Apple Membrillo, just in case I can't get hold of
any quinces this year. I hadn't baked apples for many years, but whilst looking through The Garden
Cookbook, I was taken with her advice that this " British classic should be eaten at least once during the
apple season." Sarah's recipe is perfect.
The apples take no time to prepare and once cooked make the most delicious pudding. We were eating
them for a week day lunch, so I missed out the Calvados, but I think it would be a perfect addition for an
evening meal or a special Sunday lunch. We ate them with a drizzle of cream, but a spoonful of
homemade vanilla ice-cream would have been a wonderful match too. Sarah is totally correct, these British
delights should be eaten regularly.
Thanks for reading!
