Apple recipes please!

With the amazing harvest we've had, there are so many apples around at the moment it seems a shame to see them go to waste. So we would like to post some recipes or ideas of what to do with them - best ways to store etc, from our ruralmums community. Please email hello@ruralmums with your ideas and recipes and we'll put the best ones on the site with a credit to you

I also wondered if anyone has any thoughts on what to do with ornamental quince. They look nice but are rock hard - can I preserve them?;

You can simply roast them in the oven with butter and sugar for a couple of hours covered in tin foil. They make an easy, delicious pud! I haven't preserved them but here's a link to a recipe which looks easy http://familyspice.com/recipes/recipe/?recipe_id=162;

I purchased a wonderful book a few years ago to help me out with apple recipes from my profusion of apples in my garden - it is called The Apple Source Book - can't recommend it enough - loads of recipes and ideas for apples;

Here is a recipe for Apple and Blackberry cake (which is amazing if I say so myself!):

We tend to peel, core and chop up our apples, boil them briefly to blanche them (this helps maintain their taste, colour and nutrients), then divide into portion sizes and freeze. Also you can prolong the life of apples by wrapping them individually in newspaper and storing in a cool, dry place. More info on blanching here:
