SEPTEMBER: APPLES

BRITISH, SEASONAL AND SUSTAINABLE PRODUCE CHAMPIONED EACH MONTH BY CHEF CRAIG HENNESSEY AT THE ROBIN HOOD INN

CHAMPION OF THE MONTH British apples are the best tasting in the world. And it’s all down to the mild climate.

Regular rainfall helps to produce a juicy apple, cooler temperatures bring a crunchy texture and a dash of British sunshine develops that distinctive, delicious flavour. With hundreds of varieties available, there’s a Great British apple to suit any taste.

Now in their fourteenth growing season, Eva's organics produce an amazing variety of local organic fruit and vegetables right here in Cumbria, in their market garden at Low Luckens and orchard in Carlisle.

If you care about healthy eating with a home-grown flavour, traditional hands-on gardening that cares for the land and the life it supports and unbeatable seasonal choice, then eva's organics will work for you


Hand selected organic apples, harvested from their small orchard. ​They press the finest, freshly picked apples in small batches to create a juice bursting with crisp and refreshing flavour.

Free from added sugar, sweeteners or any other unnecessary additives.

It is the time of year for our most favourite Cumbrian combination!

BUYING Avoiding apples sold in supermarkets as they can be sprayed with harmful pesticides up to 12 times in a season. look for organic or find yourself some wild apples to enjoy. Supermarket varieties have been developed for good disease resistance or storage properties, often at the expense of flavour,


STORING If stored correctly, apple varieties, can last throughout the winter months. Only store firm, unblemished apples. To store apples over winter, wrap each one in a single sheet of newspaper and place them in single layers on a tray


COOKING

Always give apples a good scrub and rinse, supermarket bought varieties are often heavily sprayed with chemicals and pesticides. If peeling or slicing apples, drop the pieces in water acidulated with lemon to stop the turning brown.
