Green Fried tomatoes.....

blogged by me domestic goddess On 9/18/2008 03:05:00 PM
well not quite, but i do have lots of green tomatoes and cooking apples. Waiting for a delivery from Lakeland so i can get chutney and jam making :)

Have had a quiet week at home, pottering and such. Yesterday I went out to the garden to pick the fruits of my labour...... Lots of green tomatoes and some mini carrots, lol, and spring onions which smell so good..... The peppers are not ready yet. Hopefully form our small crop this year, peter will get to work on my raised beds so that we can take this veggie growing malarky a tad more serious! And maybe add some fruit to our list.

I have lots of scrummy recipes to try , and yesterday made the most amazing apple sauce, not diet friendly i will admit, and an apple pie for Peter, which was pretty scrummy too!

Here's the recipe for the apple sauce, its so easy peasy!

Apple Sauce

6 - 8 cooking apples
100g butter
2 cinnamon sticks
65g brown sugar
salt and pepper to season

Place the peeled and thinly sliced apples with the butter and cinnamon sticks in a saucepan and gently simmer for 45 mins, until you have mush! Add the sugar, salt and pepper. Remove the sticks and serve with pork chops! Yummy......

Isn't it just wonderful when you can pick your dinner from the garden, i so hope to be there next year. I picked some lavender to start drying and making some little lavender pillows. I so love the smell of lavender, always makes me smile :)

Tomorrow I am heading down to see Sue for a belated birthday lunch and shopping spree. I have a list of last minute things to pick up for Izzy's party and then a mad dash home as Izzy has invited a couple of Friends over to watch the premier of Camp Rock tomorrow afternoon!!

My Bad Girls October DT Kit arrived this week, I am in scrappers heaven! I will have some sneaks to share by the end of the weekend.

Thanks for stopping by
