The Apple Tree
A couple of weeks ago, I visited a giant apple tree...
.... and this week I swapped a basket full of empty jars, for a basket full of fresh home grown apples from that same lovely tree.
Cathie told me about her Apple and Berry Crumble recipe, and so I trundled off to the supermarket in search of the missing ingredients that weren't already in my pantry.
I searched and searched and searched for rolled oats in the baking aisle..... only to realise they were with the breakfast cereals (can you tell that I've never actually bought a packet of rolled oats in my life before)?
I retrieved my kitchen scales from the parcel packing bench (sadly, they're never used for cooking anymore, only weighing parcels) and measured out all that delicious brown sugar.
Tada! It's a pity that you can't insert an aroma into a blog post, because it smelled amazing when it came out of the oven.
This was my afternoon tea yesterday.... and my breakfast thismorning.
