An apple a day

Posted on 20 September 2007

What do you do with 20 kilos of apples?

20 kilos of apples

What can’t you do!  After harvesting a ridiculous amount of apples from my future in-laws allotment plot I have spent evenings baking and making various apple related goods, including cider vinegar, apple chutney, apple pies, apple tarts, apple and cinnamon buns.

Chunky Chutney - Delicious!

Apple pies, tarts and buns

As well as stocking up my freezer and pantry, I have distributed these goods between family, friends and work colleagues. All of whom have been most grateful, it does go to show you don’t need to give people expensive gifts to make them happy.

If you do have space in your garden I reccommend that you do plant some fruit trees and bushes so you can make your own delicious food too. Even in a small space you can have fruit trees because you can purchase restricted rooted trees which will grow in pots. So go on, get planting a fruit tree this autumn.
