Though I always dread appleseason (because that means summer is definitely over), without fail I get a bit sad at the sight of the once fruitladen tree all barren and empty. So I’m going to savour these last few of our apples. What do you think is the apple recipe to end the season with a proper bang?

Spring vegetables for lunch – baby carrots, asparagus, chard, beetroot leaves, new potatoes and peas – all ingredients but the leaves sauteed in a little oil and butter, add leaves and a splash of water and braise until the potatoes are cooked – serve with sliced beetroot (cooked separately) and creme fraiche mixed with quick pickled red onion

It looks like 2018 is going to be a great year for berries, currants and the like. Have any of you guys ever tried their hand at a currantwine? And if so, do you have a recipe or advice on how to get started?

It is cold, dark and wintery outside – so it definitely feels like pie weather. This is a cheese, potato and savoy cabbage pie from a Thomasina Miers recipe that I almost followed – her shortcrust pastry recipe worked brilliantly – light and crumbly and buttery – and I only changed the filling slightly (no lardons, I didn’t fry the cabbage, I only used one onion and swapped up some of the floury potatoes for pink fir apple for a nuttier flavour, and used a lovely crumbly goat’s cheese from Ellie’s dairy with a little grated cheddar in place of the Lancashire cheese in the recipe).  We served it with squash and carrots and it was extremely tasty, warming and perfect for a November evening.

We still have plenty of pink fir apple potatoes from the plot – today we served them with grilled mackerel from the farmers market, and a stew of trumpet squash, spring onion and tomato – all ingredients cut into coins and sautéed in a little butter then garnished with basil leaves.  We used the last of our own grown tomatoes during the week so these tomatoes are from the market, but the squash and the basil are also home grown.
