Three: Apple Pie.
Since attending Rohan’s Meat Reality Workshop my mind has been living locally and sustainably. This week definitely represents that.
Lunch at Little Green Corner had been on the cards for a while, but when I saw that they were asking for help to peel some of the 50 kg of quinces they had been gifted, we headed in. The food was amazing, the staff lovely and the philosophy behind it refreshing. Most of their produce comes from a family farm or from their customers dropping it in, in exchange for coffee. All the food is seasonal, and my wild mushroom gnocchi was divine.
I missed preserving this summer, so I’ve been so glad to get my hands on large amounts Autumn fruit. I’ve made quince jam and paste and I’ll be poaching some soon. I’m so proud to be stocking up our larder.
Tonight I baked my first ever apple pie. It’s not perfect, but it’ll be delicious. Homemade sweet shortcrust pastry, homegrown apples and LOVE!
We’ve finally got some veggies in the ground. After a big last few days of layering our no dig garden, today topped it off with garden loam. A trip to the local nursery sorted us out with this seasons finest produce. I spent some time between rain showers planting the seedlings. Now we’re just looking forward to picking in a couple of months.
