Hello Dear Reader,
In the autumn, I picked, cooked and froze all of the remaining Bramley apples off our tree. It’s only a few years old, but last year gave us a bumper crop. My portions were large and here’s the remainder of the apple sauce we had from lunch today. I don’t add any sugar to my apple sauce in fact, I just add lemon juice to stop it going brown. As we had a piece of pork, with lots of veg, we didn’t need any dessert. In fact, we rarely have any at all. Inactivity and age means we have to watch our portion sizes and make sure we always leave the table feeling we could eat some more! It’s a good rule to live by.
I made a crumble mix with 3oz of plain flour, 3oz of marg, which I rubbed together and added a table spoon of sugar to the crumble and a tablespoon, which I stirred through the apple sauce. We’ll have something small for dinner tomorrow night to leave room for a dessert. I’ll keep the apple crumble in the fridge and I won’t cook it until I have the mini oven on tomorrow and I’ll squeeze it in somehow. We’ll have instant custard with it too. I din’t want to re-freeze the apple sauce as I’ve already defrosted it.
What old money saving habits can you not let go of?
