chutney. Baked apples. Apple
bobbing. Apple pie. Apple juice. Cider! The autumn is a fantastic season. One of our
favourite activities is going out and collecting apples from a friend’s
garden. We’re lucky that we go out with empty baskets and bags and come
home with a bountiful harvest of apples – almost too many to know what to do
Of all the things we could do
with our autumnal treasure, our favourite is crumble. Soft, juicy tangy apples topped with
the deepest, crunchiest topping. We
then add a generous dollop of cinnamon cream on top. Scrummy!
Drooling yet? If
the thought of our big bowl of crumble is causing you to search for your
wellies and a bag for your apple collection then we can save you some time in
searching for a recipe and strongly recommend Jamie Oliver’s crumble and our cinnamon
cream. We sometimes throw
in some blackberries if we’ve been lucky enough to find them (or clever enough
to freeze some from our earlier hedgerow shopping trip!). To make our cinnamon cream simply mix
together 150ml of whipping cream with a teaspoon of powdered cinnamon and a
tablespoon of icing sugar. Serve
with the crumble and we bet that you’ll be in apple heaven!
If you’re looking for suitable clothing for your kids to keep warm
and cost on your apple hunt then our velour hooded top and velour jumper are both great with their handy
pockets for hiding the extra apples!
