Apple season has come around again, one of my favourite times of the year along with strawberry season. You can tell I am a fruity type of girl.
Our neighbour inherited a well established apple tree in their garden when they moved in over 20 years ago. It is the variety Andrew Johnson. I had not heard of that one before but it is supposed to be a Manx cultivar, named after a previous Head Forester on the island. Although meant to be a cooker it is also very good as an eater and fruits prolifically. Luckily for us our neighbour doesn't eat them so we are free to help ourselves. We usually have buckets full of them - too many for us, so they tend to get distributed amongst friends and acquaintances. P's running mates are very appreciative.
Here is a bag destined for friends who live in town.
