Rare breed apples-heads up for 2008

Post by Cat »

We just caught the tail end of this yesterday, but Snowshill Manor in Gloucestershire has a rare-breeds/old breeds apple day every October the 21st -ish. They had about 70 varieties, and you were allowed to taste and buy in bulk. Amazing stuff! Lots of knobbly scenty russettish ones, but a number that I'd never heard of before, like the Golden Noble cookers that I bought which are bright gold colour, and have such thin skins that you don't need to pare them to puree them! Apple pie, apple and cheese lattice...

There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.
