The Season of Mists and Mellow Fruitfulness

The ‘Season of Mists and Mellow Fruitfulness’ is drawing to a close and it’s time to get those last bits of harvesting done.

In our garden we are now down to pumpkins and apples. Pumpkins keep for ages so I don’t have to panic about processing these and the mini ones look great displayed in an earthenware dish. I do look upon the remaining apples with dismay in the knowledge that every time we have tried to store them in a cool dark place it just encourages the dreaded rats!

I should have had them juiced, but I am going to try a tip from a friend in Suffolk who swears by hanging up strings of apples inside old tights – just put a knot between each so they don’t touch each other.

Stewing and freezing damaged eaters (no sugar required) gives you a healthy base for Winter puddings or to dollop on your breakfast muesli.
