Apples, pears and quinces abound

Many thanks to those who have given us so many of the above fruits this last week.  The photos show us picking fruit in friend Kaye’s garden on Saturday afternoon (with Louise).  So much fruit from just a few trees, what a great autumn it is!

Kaye’s medlar tree is looking very promising too – no doubt we’ll be making an ample amount of our specialty-of-the-house medlar liqueur this year.

The apples and pears will be pickled and spiced, bottled and then the remainder turned into juice and preserved, ensuring an ample supply to serve us through to the next autumn season.  Quinces of course will make their way into jelly and paste, yum.
