We had a pleading message left on our phone from the apple pressers at Chiltern Ridge asking us to come and collect our (second batch of) Abundance apple juice. They are so busy this year pressing apples that they are running out of room to store all the bottles of juice. So a hastily arranged drive yesterday morning and we collected 79 bottles and then ended up driving back through the pouring rain and a hailstorm. No matter, we now have it and will get it labelled ready for sale. We tried some this morning and it’s fruity and dry – very pleasant indeed.
As well as apple juice we have damson jam all bottled up and looking a glorious deep red. I think damsons, along with blackcurrants, have one of the most intense of fruit flavours. So this jam should be something to savour.
There are pears picked and ready for our ever-popular pear and ginger chutney and quinces ready for …… well maybe a chutney to go with curries a bit like mango chutney. We shall see.
