He makes rhubarb, apple and red currant, blackberry and apple. Most of the fruit is either home grown or foraged during autumn and stashed in the freeze waiting to be used over winter.
He is not bad either at making the custard that he generously gloops over the huge wedges of pie as he serves up.
The other day I came across THIS recipe and thought I would give it a try.
However, with one thing or another and although I had all the ingredients out and ready to use, I was being fully occupied by making a monster sized fish pie.
Himself wandered into the kitchen to see what I was up to, so I pointed him to the recipe and he took the challenge on.
He hummed a merry tune as he first read through the recipe then continued humming as he adapted the pie with his personal touches. It was, I have to say - a.b.s.o.l.u.t.e.l.y delish!
The steam curled up from the fruit and positively zinnnnnnged my tastebuds and tingled my nose - oooh yum!
The original recipe just used apples, but he added red currants and sultanas. It was a visual and heavenly combination.
He can do that again!
I do really recommend the recipe, it is lovely and simple and in it's original form looks good enough to serve at a dinner party. Himself loves a combination of fruits hence the rich berry red and appley goodness happening here.
Have you followed a new recipe recently with great success?
Was it a 'have-it-again' one?
Do tell, I love experimenting (and seems so does my pie-maker!) with new recipes :) and if you do try this apple pie - let me know, I'd love to hear what you think of it too!
