Fruit Coming Out of Our Ears… & Apple Day This Saturday

by Jamie on October 14, 2010

Last weekend’s harvest was a huge success! We ended up getting nearly 80kg of apples and pears for us and about the same for the climbers from the Castle Climbing Centre.

The apples we harvested were very tasty indeed and they were put to good use at the Green Sundays 10/10/10 event at the Dalston Eastern Curve Garden. It was a gloriously sunny autumn day, there was a great turn out, we made delicious apple flapjacks at Happy Kitchen in London Fields and juiced the rest using the London Orchard Project’s press.

It was a great weekend and many thanks to Ida and the climbers, Lisa at Happy Kitchen and Jessie and the Green Sundays crew for making it a memorable one!

Tonight we grabbed a further 35kg of cooking apples in Stoke Newington (thanks Helen!) and I have a variation of this plum and apple chutney bubbling away on the stove at the moment.

This Saturday we’re going to be going to the Apple Day at Stoke Newington Farmers Market and hope to see you there for lots of apple related fun and games.
