Up-side-down Apple Cake Bake
2018 has been a fantastic year for apples. This is an easy and quick way to use up some of this year's bumper crop. I use Bramleys as the cake mix is quite sweet so a slightly tart cooking apple works well.
Risotto has an ubdeserved reputation for being difficult to make, yet it is actually quite straighforward. Kale is abundant just now and this is a tasty way to enjoy it.
If you grow courgettes it goes without saying that you will have a glut. And in this year's heat they're multiplying even more than ever. Pick them young and use its sweet and subtle flavour and soft, creamy texture in chutney, steamed with butter, in stir fries, ribboned and marinaded in lemon juice and olive oil or in an unctuous ratatouille. Or, try these delicious, quick and easy fritters.
For those who already have some mature herbs on the plot, and at a time when there is little harvest to be had, a small picking of fresh herbs feels like spring. Use any varieties (apart from rosemary and lavender which are both too strong) them in this simple recipe.
