When life gives you apples, start peeling
I stewed some to have with ice cream pudding which is a favourite of ours to have with summer fruit. RazzleDazzleQuilter has the recipe for ice cream pudding on her blog.
Definitely cooking apples these ones. I had a raw slice - very, very tart.
We still had heaps left so Linda and I sat down yesterday and peeled and sliced and peeled and sliced until we filled our preserving pan.
With water added we cooked them to a pulp and they are now stored in the freezer in bags for use at our pleasure.
We still have frozen blackberries in our freezer courtesy of our brother, Alan, picking them for us and so Linda is about to embark on making blackberry and apple jelly - another flavour treat.
Whatever is left after that we will stew and store. Life is looking pretty good from where we live.
