Today we were presented with a box of windfall apples by our friend Robert. They are always a challenge to prepare, so we sorted them into good and bad bowls. The bad ones want processing quickly to prevent further decay, the good ones can wait a few days.
Apart from a few very bad apples, which went straight into the bin, most were in very good condition for windfalls. Peeled and chopped with a little lemon juice to prevent browning, we soon sorted the bad bowl.
Care needs to be taken to remove the brown bruised bits to avoid a bitter taste. Only 2 apples showed signs of insect larvae burrows, which was very good.
Bagged and into the freezer, there apples will last a year - that is unless Rosie turns them into Jam or Pies.
