Its the beginning of the apple season here is the UK and as a member and the Treasurer of our local community orchard i know i can look forward to a bounty of apples over the coming weeks. I am trying to refrain from buying any more cookery books but came across ” Apple” by James Rich in my local charity shop today and it clearly had my name on it. James is the son of a Somerset cider farmer and has a wealth of knowledge about growing and using the fruit. You can be sure there will be quite a few recipes for apples coming your way over the next few weeks. Serve this with granola and yoghurt for breakfast.
Baked fruit with a scone topping from Sybil Kapoor’s ” Modern British Food”. Serve with clotted or double cream, or perhaps mascarpone.
