Apple harvest at Coughton Court looks to be a good crop this year.
Over the past few days I’ve visited a few Orchards looked after by the National Trust to check out the harvest. I’ve been to Coughton Court, Stoneywell Cottage and Calke Abbey.
Lots of little yellow Apples hang like jewels from the trees in the Coughton Court Orchard along with beautiful rosy red ones. Perfect to lure Snow White! I can only eat cooked fruit so these will have to go in crumble accompanied with oodles of custard.
Hope you enjoy seeing a few of the varieties at Coughton Court unfortunately for this blog I didn’t record the variety of Apple. This is the second in a series of “Apple Blogs” if you want to see the Calke Abbey Apple blog, you’ll find it here
Eat an Apple on going to bed and you’ll stop the Doctor from earning his bread
