Brrrr we're in the middle of an early winter weather hit in Autumn and I'm loving it. Perfect weather to have the oven on and snuggle in and cook.
I fell in love when I first saw these adorable apple tarts.
Even better was a cook with me challenge hosted by the lovely Lorraine for me to join in and make them. If you do feel the urge to join you in have a few days to get your skates on, all the details are on the post link above. They actually are quite easy, although you need to take your time when rolling them as they are slippery suckers. If I'm honest, next time I would use a red apple and maybe coat them in the jam as well perhaps. Either way, they are so pretty and perfect for impressing any wonderful Mum this mothers day - they are a present to myself!! :)
I won't go into the hows and wherefores, just follow to see Lorraines recipe and fab video tutorial - you really can't go wrong. Here's my attempt:
We luckily have a granny smith tree housed in the chicken run.
It's not been the best year for them but I'm hoping my ladies will clean up the coddling moth and next year's crop will be stella.
I used quince jam given to me from a friend as the 'glue'
Happy, happy mothers day to all the mums out there - it's the hardest job in the world if you care about doing it well - so take a bow and an offering of one of my tightest squeezy hugs.
Ciao, Jan x
