The apple season is upon us and we have two trees full of what we think are cooking apples!  We have lived here for over 16 years so you would think we would know by now!  We usually make apple pies, cakes, crumbles and sauces but this year we would like to try out a few different ideas.  I have started off with an easy apple chutney and hope to try drying apples in the oven to make crisps for our boys.  My husband once tried to make cider but it turned into a nasty vinegar, so we may try to make an proper apple vinegar instead.  We are on the look out for ideas and recipes, so if you have any please let us know.
