Stepping out of the polytunnel the other day after doing a spot of watering and gathering some salady bits for my lunch, I spied some Blackberries on the bush I have planted in the tyres just outside the doors ... eight big juicy blackberries to be more specific.
Well one thing led to another and before I knew it I was gathering some cooking apples from the old apple tree in Chicken World, peeling, coring and soaking them before slicing them up ...
... and then cooking everything together in a very aromatic way.
A third of the lovely mixture was added to the bottom of a baking tin and topped with sponge mix and the other two thirds were put into baking tins, wrapped and placed in the freezer ready to be topped with crumble mix when the mood takes us.
And I only went over to the polytunnel for a couple of spring onions and a few lettuce leaves!!
