Fruits of the season: apple cake and chutney

We’ve got a bountiful harvest here at Bosinver this autumn. Farmer Dave’s been busy picking runner beans for his famous chutney (the receipe’s a closely guarded secret!) Helen whipped up a delicious mushroom soup for lunch the other day using some of the huge field mushrooms that are growing at Bosinver at the moment. And Pat’s been making apple cake with some of the fruit from our trees.


Homemade cake. Mmm…

If you’re lucky enough to have your own apple trees or know someone who does, why not get picking? Otherwise, head down to your local farmers’ market or supermarket to buy your fruit. Most types of apple will work well in this type of recipe – they don’t have to be cooking apples. Just make sure you’re buying apples grown in the UK rather than ones that have been flown in from abroad.

If you’d like to try the recipe Pat used, you can find it here. The cake stores well (if it doesn’t get eaten up straight away!) and is lovely with a blob of clotted cream or some custard. Kids of any age will love helping you make it – even if it’s just stirring the mixture or spooning it in to the cake tin. And if you’d prefer savoury to sweet, we’ve also found a great recipe for apple and ginger chutney.

Feeling inspired? Let us know how you get on. And if you’ve got any favourite seasonal recipes you’d be happy to share, we’d love to see them.
