A bargain

Essexgran - this is the last call for your address via a comment so I can post the book you won. If I haven't heard from you when I read my blog first thing Monday morning, I will have to draw another name out of the hat.

Coming back from our chiropractic appointments the other day, we stopped at a roadside farm shop to buy a few things. We saw huge bags of apples outside so bought one of eaters and one of cookers:
Each of the bags of apples had a weight between 2.5kgs and 3.75kgs, both at £1.50 each so very good. Yes, some of the eating apples were bruised but most were fine. The cooking apples were Lord Derby which I have not used before.

As you can see, we also bought a few raspberries and plums to put on top of our morning porridge. The carrots were so sweet, they were just amazing.

Anyway folks, hope you have a lovely weekend!

  1. Bargains. It is ages since I cooked Lord Derby but I believe they break down to a fine mush. I do remember they are very tasty.

    1. Me neither but when you know there are thousands of varieties, most not available in the shops, its not surprising.
