The Plum Tree Podcast Four

As autumn falls on the peninsula Greg, Paul and John are joined by James to muse over “harvest traditions” and what this time of year means to folk. Greg’s neighbours are also on hard to turn the apple harvest into something drinkable……

If you fancy trying the mentioned “Apple Bread”….

Grate Three Apples, then in a bowl in mix 1 teaspoon of Bicarb of Soda,1 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1 teaspoon of nutmeg, 150g of self rasing floor, 150g of ground almonds, 100g raisins, 80mls of oil, 3 eggs, 4 tablespoons of honey.
Mix the above, then fold in the grated apple, pour into a flat, lined, baking tray and bake for 20-25 mins – top will be nice a golden.

Well, having chatted about food over the last two podcasts, John, Paul and Greg hosted a small outdoor supper for their “better halves” – what did they cook? How did the food go down? (What was it washed down with?) and more importantly, what did everyone think of it?
Listen on and find out….
