Yesterday was a chill but sun-filled morning for harvesting ripe fruit for fizz - grapes for wine, apples for cider!
We joined a small crew to help our friend Al gather in the grapes from the small vineyard he manages. With an apple tree on the perimeter, it was the perfect opportunity to harvest crates of apples too!
A glut of green tomatoes and apples - o what to do?!?
Green tomato and apple glutney of course!
