One apple festival later…

And we’ve found out that the apples we’ve been enjoying (very very much thank you!) in apple and cinnamon muffins are indeed eating apples. Instead of piling on the sugar pounds, we could have been enjoying these apples raw, and they do taste rather wonderful I must say. So fresh and crisp, sweet and sharp, a really nice balance. A flagstaff variety apparently. Clearly a modern onesince I’m actually taller than the tree itself.

But regardless, we bought some more at a local apple festival. We got a few kilograms because they're taste is simply out of this world, nothing like supermarket apples. If you have a local apple festival near you, I urge you to go! You might also find a stall that sells apple and frangipane cake… how could I resist?!!

And you might also get to meet some rather interesting characters... An apple festival on a clear and crisp autumn day which involves eating cake and stroking soft wool, you just can't beat it!

Hmm, cake and Alpacas? Not a combination I would have expected but I trust you to tell me the truth! ;-)
