five ways with … a ton of apples

October 17, 2013 at 9:05 pm 3 comments

In honour of World Apple Day on 21st October I thought it was high time I did an apple round up (a bit of a cheat I know but needs must when blogging time is tight!). So here are a few of my favourite recipes if you find yourself with an apple or ten knocking about (see original post for recipe information)

brie baked apples

.apple and berry cordials

apple herb jellies
17-9-10 - mint jelly on spoon 4B

mock goose (potato) bake
Mock goose served

curried apple and carrot chutney
The Folk Museum in Gloucester will be hosting their fabulous National Apple Day
on Saturday 26th October from 10am – 4pm. Perhaps we’ll see you there?

ps. this is my new favourite apple dessert but I haven’t posted about it yet so it’s a bonus 6th option (or at the very least a note to self to get it written up before the blog link that inspired it is lost, the pictures eventually remembered and the recipe cobbled together like the Mock Goose!)29-9-13 - sour apple pie - served up with ice cream 4B

      thanks Deena, they won’t disappoint and are so quick to make. Like you say so comforting at this time of year and no shortage of apples to use up. I’m going to be making the apple and carrot chutney tomorrow with my glut of apples – a lovely sweet spicy company to curry on a cold autumnal day

Fresh from the oven.  Can you smell it?  Happy Saturday everyone x
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #easypeasylemoncake Fondly thinking of my Nan as I mix up the lemon cake batter with L.  When I baked with her as a child we sometimes used a wooden spoon for mixing but I was in awe of the hand held whisk with the handle that seemed so miraculous.  I love that @oxouk have a modern day version for mornings when our slow pace doesn't want to be interrupted by the whirr of machinery #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #oxogoodgrips #bakingwithkids #childhoodunplugged #slowsaturdays #lovedungarees Trying to decide whether to make lemon cake or these beetroot and chocolate muffins.  I guess the boys will determine that as I've all the ingredients for one but not the other! Love having an on-line cookbook to browse through in my blog.  #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #beetrootandchocolatemuffins #bakingwithkids #flashbackfriday here you go @cathy.heller my 2.5 year old self saying Hi to your 6 year old self!  My love of gardening must have started at a young age.  I'm pleased to say I get most of the water on the plants these days! 
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #throwbackphotos #gardeningwithkids #70skid Writing clears my head. I write the words it's too scary to mutter.  Sharing the words is scary too but in the sharing comes the feeling of being less alone in it.  I dumped these words in a blog post 3 years ago.  Time to let them fly and find someone who might be having a hard time today. Link to "how it feels sometimes parenting a 3 year old" in bio.  Much love x #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #parentingistough #writingastherapy #newblogpost #gentleparenting Thanks Anna @imaginationtree for this brilliant toddler activity idea.  23 month old Luca filling up muffin tins with balls using our fab easygrip @oxouk tongs #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #oxogoodgrips #thelennyagency Regrann from @musicalgeorgemoorey -  Alice White & George Shilling in action a few hours ago for session 6 of #spacesgloucester  @gloucestercathedral #nationallotteryfunded Luca and I discovered the most amazing place in town today.  A beautiful craft space where you pay £4 to make anything from beautiful beaded canvases to painted ornaments to mosaic door signs.  What a peaceful way to spend an hour making a canvas for the boys.  Luca helped too, mostly by bimbling about picking up pots of beads and letters. If you're in Gloucester you must check out @kftreasureseekers .  Open daily including Saturdays and available for parties.  We'll definitely be back! 
#gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #makeandtake #kftreasureseekers #craftingwithkids In this crazy world of technology and social media I hope my boys don't ever find letter writing and parcel post to be the stuff of history books.  You can't beat a little postal surprise and love letter.  This fab book is on it's way to the boys cousin :0)
