Weekend Wet Walking and Apples

There are lots of apple trees here in the West Country because we make a lot of cider .. most are in orchards though and thus untouchable .Unless you go in for a touch of scrumping. Which being a well brough up young lady I would never consider…well maybe after a couple of pints of cider

However this little apple tree was all on its own and so fair game to make a little tart

Lonely Apple TreeScrumped Cooking ApplesApple Tart with Rosehip Syrup

Rosehip and Apple Tart

Roll out ready made puff pastry , with apple slices drizzled with rosehip syrup and baked at 220 deg C for 20 minutes

Rosehip Syrup

500 g of rosehips
200 g of sugar
1.5 litres of water.
Chop rosehips finely and put into 1 litre of boiling water. Bring back to the boil. Remove from heat and let infuse for 15mins. Finely strain the rosehips till the bulk of the liquid has been collected. Return the pulp to the saucepan with the remaining water. Re-boil and infuse again for 10mins and then strain again. Pour the juice into a clean saucepan and simmer until the right consistency and then add the sugar, boil for 5 mins and then bottle.

Also this weekend wild crab apples too they are a little sour but you can gather then
