It’s that time of year again; summer is just about leaving us, but the first fruit of autumn is coming out to play [with our taste buds]. As you might have seen from my instagram (click the icon to the right, or follow @frugalfeeding) my apple tree is positively dripping with fruit – it is quite the sight to behold. This means that I can either let them rot, sell them or make delicious things with those that we don’t eat. The first of those options doesn’t bear thinking about; it simply wouldn’t be frugal. The second would mean having to traipse into town carrying a sack of apples, something I’m too lazy to do. So, by process of elimination the third option is the one that has been plumped for and look what happened – apple and blackberry sorbet. Even the blackberries were from a bush at the back of my garden. The only fruit left for me to make something with are our damsons.
