  • 50 events ranging from apple road-shows grafting classes and village hall markets. By 2000 the day was celebrated in over 600 events around the country, and abroad! Events were organised by restaurants, museums, Women’s Institutes, cider makers, community orchards and garden societies, to name but a few. I had planned to “dress my apple trees” today, as you may remember me discussing last week - Taste the Season with British Apples and Pears: Apple, Bramble & Pear Tray Bake Recipe; but, the weather was inclement today and so my apple tree dressing was put to one side. So, instead, what better than to bake with APPLES; with a couple of apples (Russets) left over from my apple and pear shopping expedition from Sainsbury’s last week, where they have an incredible 52 varieties on sale, I decided to celebrate apple day in my kitchen.
