Ah, wonderful bounty!
We are still deciding what to do with these. Maybe some passata to store for later on in the year.
These beauties came from my friend Sarah’s super-abundant apple trees in her back garden. We really don’t need to be eating any more desserts at the moment so I searched through my beloved Nigella and found an interesting Spiced Apple Chutney recipe and gave it a go, using one of our chillies.
I love the subtitle to this book. “Baking and the art of comfort cooking.” Yes please- I’ll have me some of that!
I’m not really a chutney-making kinda girl. But recently I have been finding it all too hard to resist, and I must admit, it’s lots of fun. It’s probably just because I like the look of the cute jam-jars all lined up!
While we were bouncing we found a huge pile of sycamore seeds had landed on it (which is a great thing because we don’t want any more sycamore saplings growing in the lawn!) I tried to demonstrate the helicopter trick, but it wasn’t quite as impressive as I remember from my own childhood.
Looking forward to the temperature dropping by another 10 degrees or so and coveting a fireplace in time for Christmas!
