One of the best things about visiting the garden in summer would be all the fresh fruit you could pick and eat; blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, pears and of course lots and lots of apples. Although now many of those fruit trees and bushes have gone the one that still remains at the center of the garden is the old apple tree.
The apple tree has been there longer than the house has, I would guess around fifty years or possibly longer and still at the end of every summer it has the juiciest, crunchy and most delicious apples you've ever tasted. When asked what my favorite type of apples are I always say nanna's apples! One of the greatest things about these apples are that they are completely organic we've never used any pesticides or spray to help them grown, they grow purely on sunlight and rainwater with a little help from the bees of course. They aren't the hugest apples in fact they're only small but still absolutely delicious in every way and you know what they say "good things come in small packages" and in this case it is most definitely very true.
Now with so many apples the challenge is what to do with them. My nanna makes a great apple crumble and apple sauce which she gives to friends and family. My auntie, who also has an apple tree, makes apple chutney with hers but now it's my turn to come up with a great apple recipe. I've been presented with a huge bag full of delicious apples and no idea what to do with them so now it's my job to find a delicious recipe to share with the family so for the next few days I'll be knee deep in recipe books and apples! However once I find a great recipe I'll be sure to share it.
