2019 On The Allotment

 2019 has been a good year for apples, in fact, I have an abundance. I am still harvesting apples and sorting out the best to store for use over winter and next spring. Beside making apple pies and crumbles for family members I've been using them imaginatively in the kitchen. On November 1st I sliced some and added to a stir fry along with the stalks of Swiss chard leaves finely sliced, tonight (2nd Nov.) I've added some along with sliced Swiss chard to a curry. The raspberries that I'm still harvesting have been put in the freezer for jam making at a later date.
