🍎Fruit Update 🍎
Our Fruit Stall will close next Sunday, 29th May for the Season so tomorrow, Tuesday and Wednesday are our last courier days 😁
Democrat, Granny Smith, Splendour and Braeburn are still available 🍏🍏🍎🍎
All apples are crisp and crunchy.
Granny Smith, Democrat and Braeburn are long keepers.
Mum and I bottle Granny Smiths and also stew them up in a stock pot and them ladle them into containers or freezer bags to use during the Winter months – great for pies, shortcakes or topped with custard πŸ˜‹
All varieties are available on the Fruit Stall in 2, 5kg and 10kg bags and I send them out in 5, 10kg and 15kg boxes – mixture boxes available 😊
Open from first light 🌞 until dark πŸŒ›
7 days a week
Ring me, Ruby, 0272886090 anytime for fruit queries or to place an Order 😊
PS. Next weekend I will finally post photos of Mum’s vast garden around the house as I have been asked by many to do so, especially those who have moved away and can no longer visit.

Fruit Update

Fruit Update
Democrat apples are now available 🍎🍎🍎🍎
They are a Heritage variety, with a dark red skin and are full of flavour – delicious for both eating and cooking.
Granny Smith, Braeburn, Splendour and Red Delicious are still available – Red Delicious will finish in a few days time 🍏🍎
One of my favourite recipes is Apple Shortcake – here is the simple recipe my Mum and I use.
You can also use bottled apricots or cooked frozen apricots if you like ☺️
*****************************************
Sandra’s Apple Shortcake Recipe 1979
2 cups Flour
1 heaped tspn Baking Powder
125g Butter
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup Sugar
Milk (just enough to bind…about 1-2 tablespoons)
Stewed apples – Granny Smith, Braeburn and Democrat are ideal for this
Chuck flour, baking powder and chopped butter into a food processor.
Blitz it until it resembles breadcrumbs, albeit coarse.
Add beaten egg and sugar (mix these together before chucking in the processor.)
And now for the milk.
Be careful as you pour in the milk; just enough to bind; not flood the mixture.
Knead on a lightly floured board until smooth – roll mixture out, cut into two and put one half of the dough evenly over base of a 22cm square tin; coat thickly with stewed apples and top with the other half.
Brush over with milk.
Bake at 180 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
Dust icing sugar over the top when warm.
Lovely hot with custard or whipped cream or served cold as a cake.
This recipe can also be doubled and cooked in a Swiss Roll Tin.
