Apple Fair

Saturday was the best day of the year in this house ‘Apple Fair Day!’.

Seriously L and I love it more than Christmas. There are tents with Medieval Storytellers.

Giant apples, seriously never seen such amazingly huge apples. I should have gotten some to make a pie but got distracted by Mulled Cider!


There are stalls selling apples, apple cakes, fudge, heavenly apple juices, ciders, crafts and most importantly for us a huge HogRoast washed down with hot apple juice.


If you have a local Apple Fair in the next couple of weeks, pop along and support it. 

British Apple Orchards are making a tentative comeback. Since the 1950s 60% of British Orchards and all the biodiversity that came with them, have been destroyed. But in the last 5 years new planting schemes are slowly bringing them back. If you have a spare patch of garden plant an apple tree, you won’t regret it!

  1. Ha ha, I have an admission to make! I’m Dutch and LOVE homemade apple sauce especially with roast pork. Hhhhmmmmm. 🙂

    Simply peel an apple or two, core and chop into small dice. Place in saucepan with a little water, a sprinkle of lemon juice, some ground cinnamon, a little sugar, a tiny bit of salt and a clove or two.

    Place on low heat until apple is really soft (about 15 mins), nsure pan doesn’t get dry or apple will burn. Add a little water if pan looks too dry.

    When apple is soft add a good chuck (or a little if you are watching your weight) of butter and mix in with a fork. After mixing in butter your apples should now be a sauce like consistency. Enjoy!!
