stored apples

My last blog was about the huge waste of food we have in our country each day.

It doesn't have to be like that. Here's some evidence that you can grow and store your own food very successfully.

2008 was a great year for apples and we stored our bumper crop in half dozens in sealed plastic bags that had been punctured to give ventilation.

The 'Red Falstaff' variety is our best and longest 'keeper' and here's the latest group ready to eat.

They've lost a small amount of weight in the past four months but remain sweet and juicy. Great to eat as they are, included in porridge or chopped with other fruit for a healthy breakfast.

Remember that they are organic, so no chemicals used in production or to extend storage.
