It’s that time of year. Apple, apples, apples. As well as fabulous apple pie, the other wonderful thing that can be made out of our very own British apples is chutney. Every Autumn it makes me so sad when I see this wonderful home grown fruit going to waste in thousands of gardens across the country. And if you pop to Sainsburys, you can buy tasteless Pink Lady imported from the other side of the world. Tragic,
Anyway, I spread the word around my local network of friends and have since been inundated with offers of mishapen, slightly bruised, yet delicious apples. I made my first batch of Monster Chutney today. Lots more to follow, including a some for HAWI’s stall at the Pinner Panto night in November. The Pickle Queen is back.
