Last week we took in our last batch of apple donations for the community apple pressing. Big thanks to everyone who brought their apples in! Donors will hear from us later in the season about their bottled juice. Customers can now add the freshly pressed apple juice to their veg box order here.
With apples everywhere at Regather and at home, it had to be an apple recipe this week.
As I write, I’m about to trial some pickled apple slices in spiced vinegar. If they are a success, the recipe will go on these pages!
In the meantime, here’s my go-to apple cake. It’s vegan and super easy. Even if you’re not vegan, it’s a good standby recipe because it’s so economical to whip up – no expensive butter or eggs. You just need some apple cider vinegar in your store cupboard plus some protein-rich plant milk e.g. soya or almond (don’t use oat milk).
You can use eating apples or cooking apples – if using cookers, increase the sugar component ever so slightly, to taste.
Thanks to our Rhiannon for the gorgeous pic.
