Apples Everywhere

Apples everywhere …

During daytime I put a box with apples out at the bottom of the drive near Creamery Green. Please, please help yourselves! Some are perfect, others have the odd blemish.

Here is my favourite recipe for Dutch Apple Pie:

175 g margarine

300 g plain flour

a pinch of salt

3 tsp baking powder

100g caster sugar

1 egg

Line the bottom of a spring form (10 inch) with baking paper, mix the ingredients and line bottom & sides of the form with the mixture (you’ll need plenty of flour on your hands to stop the mixture from sticking to your hands).

Approx. 600-700 grams of peeled, cored and sliced cooking apples. Mix with some sugar, lemon juice and grated zest, sultanas and cinnamon. Mix. Push slices into inside of the pastry rim for firmness and use the rest to fill. Bake at approx. 170 C for approx. 30-40 minutes.

60 g granulated sugar

60 g margarine

60 g sliced almonds

Breadcrumbs (white – 2 slices)

Vanilla essence (a few drops)


Mix, add as topping once the pastry rim starts to go brown. Bake for a further 10 minutes until golden brown.

Apple Pressing

Anyone out there finding a surplus of apples on the floor, during these windy days, and fancy turning it into juice or something else…give us a buzz and I’ll happily bring round a pretty useful press and help you to juice them.

It’s that time of year where some folk end up with a glut of garden produce and a lack of enthusiasm use them – after all, there are only so many things you can do with courgettes!

So, this year, Parwich Legion has introduced a produce box. The idea is that locals can bring in their surplus home-grown / homemade produce (e.g. potatoes, beans, courgettes, cucumbers, tomatoes, herbs, raspberries, jams, chutney, eggs etc.) for others to buy.

You can opt to sell your produce or you can donate the money generated to the ‘Legion Activity Fund’. If you would like to sell it, please have a price in mind when you take it in.

Speak to Gill either at the Legion, or on 390309 for further details.
