Apple butter- done! ( as Gordon Ramsay would say!)
Now we've just made Delia's apple loaf- it's in the oven right now. Here's the link if you want to try Delia's apple and pecan loaf. It's smelling wonderful. Shame about the diet.
We've still got loads of windfalls left, and the next thing I'm planning to do with them is to make and freeze apple sauce for Christmas. I make a special apple sauce by putting a knob of butter in a heavy based pan, with just a little water, and sweating the apples till soft. I like to keep the apple as concentrated as possible. I then add sugar to taste. It all depends on what mixture of apples came down in the wind.
Add spices if you like, or you can add them at Christmas when you defrost the sauce.
If you haven't tried our Grasmere blackberry and apple crumble click on this link and take a look at this easy recipe. It's a winner!
