Try a few blackberries as well as these are just coming now. Charlotte is a really useful way of using up bread that is a bit stale but not otherwise looking unfit to eat. Make bread-crums out of it and sprinkle on top of some cooked fruit with a bit of sugar and lemon and drizzle with a little oil, then cook in a moderate oven for about 20 mins.
Yes please to apples. You can also sell them to Ryefields to be made into apple juice if you have too many.

I was a bit inspired by Freya's apple butter, which she had on display at the last N Kessock market. I'm assuming it's an appley version of lemon curd, but I may be barking up completely the wrong tree (maybe a lemon tree?). I've looked for recipes on-line, but they all seem to have lots of extra sugar, and I thought Freya said hers didn't. Does anyone have a recipe without too much sugar?

We've just been de-coring apples and cutting them into rings and threading them on a string to dry above the stove. After a couple of weeks we have fantastic dry apple rings that can be stored in air tight tins over the winter - with no sugar or extra fuel used.
At the last Grow north event, Toni demonstrated an brilliant little de-coring, peeling and slicing into rings device. Again, no electricity needed and apparently available on line for less than £10.
