Garden produce recipes

Just put the sliced apples and blackberries in a pan with a very little water and sugar to taste and simmer gently until beginning to soften.  Put into the dish and allow to cool.  Top with the crumble mix, cover with foil, clingfilm and freeze. 

When you have your oven working remove the dish from the freezer, allow it to come to room temperature then cook as normal.

Hello Pdoc - good to see you - glad you're finding positive things to keep yourself occupied - the other stuff doesn't do anyone any good ((hugs))

Watched Sir Tom on Jools Holland the other day - brilliant, better than he's ever been - trying to stop myself buying his new album Long Lost Suitcase - it's on my wish list for Father Christmas

The most important preparation for winter in this household is to make sure I know where my Yaktrax are - with my dodgy knee if I slip I could be out of action for weeks - if I'm wearing Yaktrax I can walk fearlessly on icy pavements

This is not an advert - it's a personal recommendation and a vote of confidence

Hosta, you'll need a bigger piggy bank

Now I'm confused. Wakes-Cornwall -sorry Verdun. I'm an ignoramus. Didn't realise.

You could try that with the Verbena - no need with the cosmos, sow them in the spring.
