My apple tree has reached some degree of maturity and this year promises to supply enough fruits for a few lunch boxes.
Red currants are the most under rated of the soft fruits. In puddings and desserts they are sharper than most soft fruits which makes for a great sauce for greasier meats such as lamb or pork and duck. Blackcurrants. The majority of all commercial crops are used for Ribena but don't discount them. They also make a great sharp sauce but also much better ice cream !
