The cooking apples from the tree on the lane down to the Welsh Hovel have been dropping for weeks. But now those edible apples in both the old and new orchards are also ripening fast and thus every few days I find myself making another jar of stewed apples and cinnamon to store in the fridge.
Jayarani loves it with yoghurt for almost any meal. The Mrs and I would eat it with cream as a pudding or as a sauce with meat and tonight it forms the basis of an apple and blackberry crumble. Tomorrow it goes on my breakfast porridge. Only. Joshua, going through a fussy phase, refuses to eat it at all.
This week, with the edibles now ripe, it will be time to get the press out and start making some juice, something even “the pest” loved last year.
