It is apple harvest time
We inherited a small selection of apple trees and have added some ourselves. Each Autumn the Apple Man arrives with his van full of boxes from the orchards of England. It was he who named our inherited stock and today we made a start on the Norfolk Royal tree.
We filled one box with large unblemished fruit worth storing but we also had a lot of grade two apples
So we set to work

The apples were quite hard but a 25 litre tub of fruit yielded about ten litres of juice
