This was originally inspired by Augusts Cultivate, Cook and Click Competition over at WeGrowOurOwn.co.uk. Unfortunately due to job interviews and assessment days, I completely lost track of time and forgot to submit it!
But, this is a really quick and easy recipe that I have discovered is PERFECT for freezing! That means that you can forage for blackberries, and collect apples from your tree as they fall, and prepare a delicious Winter Warmer, despite the fact its still August!
A top tip for any students out there is to batch cook, and this is a brilliant example! If you have any fruit or veg that you don’t think you’ll be able to eat before it starts to go off, then do some batch cooking, split the dish into individual portion sizes, and freeze so that the next time you can’t be bothered to cook you have a home-made ready meal in the freezer!
We have hundreds of apples falling off of our apple tree every day, we just can’t pick them quick enough, so my family have requested that I bake a couple of pies to pop in the freezer to eat when the winter nights draw in!
Served best hot with a big dollop of ice cream, this really is a winter warmer!
Knowing such a delicious pie is in the freezer waiting will make you forget the fact that as a student, you can’t afford the heating!
